Do you know how to identify where certain VFR reporting waypoints are on a chart? Do you know if the airport you are landing at has an operating beacon? Do you know if the airport you are landing at has pilot controlled lighting, or lighting at all? Or maybe if you just want a VFR chart refresher, this is the place for you to be.

VFR charts pack an extraordinary amount of material and represent a 3-dimensional world of terrain and airspaces in 2 dimensions. They describe graphically the earth as it looks to us pilots from the air. And no matter how much we study them and how good we get at interpreting them there is always something new or some little nuance that we didn’t realize. Lastly, they are fun. Who doesn’t enjoy looking at a map, especially an aviation one?

Join a San Carlos Flight Center CFI Mari Baratto as she gives a ground school refresher. She will actively involve the audience in this fun review of VFR charts and point out interesting facts that you then can go out and impress your friends.
