Come to Our Free Monthly Meetings

We hold monthly meetings where our presenters speak on a broad variety of topics: aviation and flying safety, how to build airplanes, flying around the country in an open cockpit aircraft, flying a blimp, and many other topics. Many of our programs are authorized by the FAA for WINGS [continuing education] credits. The meetings are free and open to all, and usually occur on the first Tuesday of each month.

Our Next Meeting


with Ron Berinstein

– – Dispelling myths about many GA flight aspects from Spins to Cross Country Flying.

Rethinking the answers.  So many of us really know what we were taught, but is that still right today?  We learned from the folks we knew.  But, truth be told, there is a lot of bad stuff out there that was legitimately professed. As the times have changed, so have our ideas about what is correct, and what is not.

This presentation is a wonderful, entertaining collection of myths that most pilots know to be true, and would willingly swear by; but aren’t!  Many GA flight aspects are covered… Aero-Medical, Aerodynamic, Best Glide Facts, Angle of Attack, Flight Controls, Aircraft Instruments, EGT use, Flight Controls, and more…  Lot’s of audience participation! Seminar length: 2 hrs
