Coming Events:

FAA Safety Team | Safer Skies Through Education seminar: "After the Crash: Surviving an Aircraft Accident"
Monday, March 23, 2015 at 19:00 at the Valley River Inn.

Description:  Of the millions of GA flights every year, only a few end with unplanned off-airport landings. But even though the odds of a crash are slim, the potential consequences are harsh—which is why smart pilots prepare and take basic precautions. That’s where our new seminar comes in. From route planning and emergency rations to signal mirrors and sat phones, our presenters take a user-friendly, common sense approach at maximizing your chances of survival and rescue after a crash.
 
Young Eagles Event June 20th in conjunction with the 5K on the Runway at KEUG.
