Rusty Pilot Refresher Seminar – October 25 at S.F. Airport
We know there are a lot of former active pilots in our community. People who have enjoyed flying 5, 10, 15 years ago or more and for a variety of reasons have not been back to enjoy the world from above. We believe many of these lapsed pilots still have an interest in flying but have concerns about their own rusty skills, changes in airspace definitions, communications, navigation tools and even the airplanes that we fly. All of this can be intimidating if you haven’t flown for a few years. We want to try and address these issue with a FREE “Rusty Pilot Refresher Seminar.”
The Rusty Pilots Refresher Seminar will be held the last Saturday of October in hangar #49 at the Spanish ForkSpringville Airport and will cover airspace, new procedures, computerized weather and flight planning, GPS navigation, aeronautical decision making and current FAA “Special Emphasis Areas.” The intent of this seminar is to bring together a group of inactive pilots that will become a peer group to review old and new experiences and become active pilots again. Numerous handouts will be provided for discussion and future reference. Lunch will also be brought in for the group. The Rusty Pilot Refresher Seminar is FREE, and the seminar provides a completion certificate that will meet the ground review requirements of FAR 61.56.
If you know of once upon a time active pilots that still have a passion for aviation please encourage them to join us October 25th at 9 AM in Hangar #49. Attendees will need to register by calling our dispatch Desk at (801) 471-1304.
