New Event Added: Oct 21 Safety Seminar - Cross Country Challenge

cross country challenge

When we talk about safety, we normally tackle one issue at a time—thunderstorms one day, taxi clearances the next. But out in the real world, any given flight can bring together a whole range of interconnected safety issues:
  • Fly through that precip…or deviate and cut into my fuel reserve?
  • Climb above that scattered layer…or risk airsick passengers?
  • Fly with an underinflated nose strut…or delay and fly in worse wx?
Our new seminar reflects that reality. You’ll follow along as we “fly” two fictional trips, answering questions (and debating answers) along the way. From preflight planning to tie-down technique, if it’s related to the flight, it’s fair game!

Mid-Atlantic Section Section Meeting Registration Deadline September 15, 2015

Please remember to register at your earliest convenience for the upcoming Section in Fredericksburg.  
Barbara Wilper and I (Marge Shaffer) took a dry run.  
YOU WILL LOVE the Robin's Nest Cafe at beautiful Shannon Airport.  
Its lively decor mimics a 50's diner.  Our BBQ will be a big hit there on Friday night. 
The hotel is really nice and conveniently located amidst the historically quaint Fredericksburg downtown 
with charming sidewalks for strolling and nearly hidden patio cafes and restaurants for get-togethers. 
Love this town. The banquet is in a renovated yet fascinating railway station.  
We also visited the aromatic Whiskey plant located on a picturesque river. 
Join us for a fantastic weekend with so many other things to do and see.  
We shall be doing cartwheels on the taxi way while we wait for your registration forms.  
You can find the registration forms at:
