Chesapeake Sport Pilot plans open house
STEVENSVILLE — Chesapeake Sport Pilot will hold its annual open house and community picnic Saturday, Oct. 8. The morning will kick off with a free Rusty Pilot ground school seminar for lapsed pilots looking to return to the skies. Getting back into flying is easy at Chesapeake Sport Pilot as many of Chesapeake Sport Pilot’s planes do not require a medical to fly. Attending this free seminar which counts for both flight review and Wings credit is step one.
At noon, Chesapeake Sport Pilot will fire up the grill with plenty of hot dogs and hamburgers to go around for its annual community picnic.
At 1 p.m. FAA flight instructor Mike Bangert will teach a free Wings seminar about “Loss of Aircraft Control — What Causes It and How to Avoid It,” followed by additional seminars “Adventures Beyond the Pattern — Things to consider after you get your certificate or get back in the pilots seat and move beyond the pattern by yourself” and “Rules of Thumb — A collection of aviation ‘rules of thumb,’ that is, educated guesstimates for quick calculations,” by flight instructor Fred Lagno.
Introductory flight lessons will be offered throughout the day and the new Generation V Tecnam Eaglet will be on display in the afternoon.
We have a lot to celebrate this year, said owner Helen Woods, who also is the chief flight instructor.
“After nine and a half years in business, we have flown tens of thousands of hours, earned the first RV12 dealership in the nation, become the first Searey training school in the world, been recognized as one of the top flight schools in the country two years in a row, graduated dozens of pilots, and given thousands of people the opportunity to experience the fun and excitement of flight in a light sport aircraft,” Woods said. “We are looking forward to the community celebrating with us.”
