Ch­e­sa­peake Sport Pi­lot plans open house

Record Observer - - News -

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.”
