Enjoy a fun and educational opportunity for free at East Hill. Refreshments will be served. We present an overview of a typical flight training sequence. We cover all these steps and challenges in our discussions and hands-on during the seminar.
Please also explore our website for more information. Also, note that while we are a very professional FAA Part 141 Flight School, we also know how to have fun and increase your skills. If you have any questions, please email Mike Thomas, Club Manager and Chief Instructor.
Collision Course: Avoiding Airborne Traffic
The “big sky” can get awfully small when multiple aircraft are in the vicinity. Even with ATC support and traffic displays, near misses happen too frequently and midair collisions still happen. Advanced technologies which ensure more precise course and altitude tracking and more aircraft converging on fewer airports all work to shrink the “big sky”.
ASI’s new seminar looks at the problem from a risk management perspective. We identify high-risk scenarios and locations, then lay out strategies for avoiding them. From congested corridors to frenetic fly-ins, we talk about:

Life may have gotten in the way, but the dream of flight can be yours again. Returning to the skies is not as difficult as most rusty pilots think. We’re inviting you back in the cockpit and will help you get there. Come and participate in this Rusty Pilots program with fellow lapsed pilots. We will help you understand what’s changed in aviation since you last took the controls and brush up on your aviation knowledge. The Rusty Pilots program is developed by AOPA in partnership with local flight training providers in order to create the best environment for getting you back in the air and a part of the general aviation community.
Pre-registration is encouraged since seats fill up fast! To pre-register for this event, visit the official event page here: https://hangar.aopa.org/events/item/52/1199
After our delicious lunch, David St. George (remember him, left to become a real pilot) has offered to give a short talk and answer any questions about being a charter pilot.
