Interested in Prop Balancing?

Tony K. has Jeremy from Watsonville (Precision Balancing) coming up to balance the props on both of his aircraft.

He can do 4 or 5 aircraft per day. So we’d like to get a few more folks together and make his trip worth it. If we get enough, he can stay up here for 2 days. Currently planning for the week of July 24-28.

Cost is $259 or $299 depending on where he has to add/subtract weight.

We already have Ken Ledwick to sign the log books and supervise the operations.

Contact me directly if you’re interested.

Rusty Pilots seminar on Saturday

Saturday, July 15
09:00 – 12:00
Lincoln, CA

1880 Flightline Drive
Unit 1
Lincoln, CA 95648
United States

Hosted By:
Lincoln Skyways

Instructed by AOPA Presenter William Beuck.

Life may have gotten in the way, but the dream of flight can be yours again. Returning to the skies is not as difficult as most rusty pilots think. We’re inviting you back in the cockpit and will help you get there. Come and participate in this Rusty Pilots program with fellow lapsed pilots. We will help you understand what’s changed in aviation since you last took the controls and brush up on your aviation knowledge. The Rusty Pilots program is developed by AOPA in partnership with local flight training providers in order to create the best environment for getting you back in the air and a part of the general aviation community.

  • It is easier than most people think – no FAA check ride or test
  • Might not even need a medical
  • Plus, by attending, you’ll be getting two to three hours of ground instruction towards your flight review!

Pre-registration is encouraged since seats fill up fast! To pre-register for this event click here!

NORCAL Facility Visit on morning, Saturday, July 22, 2017

The FAA NORCAL TRACON has approved a facility visit for up to 10 individuals for Saturday morning, July 22.

This is an opportunity for pilots to see what’s on the other end of the radio when flying in the Northern California airspace. Those on the tour will have the opportunity to visit the radar control room and see how the approach control works.

We are limited to only ten individuals for this visit. If we have a large demand we will try and arrange another visit at a later date.

Once we have a list of attendees we will work out the transportation arrangements. There may be a fly-in opportunity to the Mather Jet Center with transportation to the NORCAL facility, which sits east of Mather Field but is still several miles from the Jet Center.

Please respond to Jim if you want to attend. We take those interested in attending up to the maximum of ten from the email responses. Please only request to attend if you are sure you will be able to attend on July 22. Jim will let you know of the final list of attendees.

NorCAL ATC meeting on Saturday 24th

Come and spend some time in a session with a NorCal ATC controller during this program to be held at the EAA Hangar (S-12) on Saturday, June 24th, at 09:00 at the Lincoln Airport.

Let’s take this opportunity to learn how to make interactions with our local Approach Control more efficient for both ourselves and the controllers who are working us. Are there things we as pilots can do to make the system work better for us and other users? And maybe there are things we see from our perspective that would help those on the other side of the headset make the traffic flow better for all.

All are welcome but, pilots especially, bring your questions and comments for a solid exchange of information. Spread the word and bring your friends. Let’s take advantage of this opportunity.
