Learn To Fly Week: May 15-20
This six-day event concludes with chapter hosted Flying Start events on May 20, 2023. These events welcome, encourage, and educate aspiring pilots to a flight training pathway at their local airport. Flying Start events are capped with the FREE introductory Eagle Flight!
In our area, there are three chapters hosting a Flying Start Event on May 20: Reno-Stead, Watsonville, and Camarillo. More information on scheduling the Flying Start Event can be found here.
So, if you or someone you know has always wanted to learn to fly but did not know how to start, please go to the Learn To Fly Week page at the EAA website and review the free online webinars that are available during the week of May 15 and register for those that will help answer your questions.
Any questions, please email our chapter at email@example.com and we’ll try to get you an answer.
IMC/VMC club online meeting Thursday, May 4 at 7 pm PDT
Our online IMC/VMC club meeting for May will be held from 7 to 8 pm this coming Thursday, May 4. The IMC “What Would You Do?” involves a morning departure from San Carlos airport while Bay Area fog is causing low IFR conditions, and a problem that develops right after takeoff. The VMC scenario is on the opposite side of the country, with a late afternoon VFR departure planned; while you are lined up for takeoff, a landing aircraft in front of you runs off the runway.
FAA Wings credit is available for this event by registering here.
We look forward to a lively exchange of ideas, and everyone is invited to participate.
