11 December 2020: We have been approved to let instructors fly with students again starting Monday, 14 Dec. We can also fly with members who need their annual checkrides.
We are still limited to members flying by themselves with no friends, family, or other Flight Center members. We are also still limited to no cross-country flying – members must stay in the local flying area.
We have been instructed to continue with the protocols for dealing with COVID as we have been doing – masks, temperature checks, cleaning aircraft, etc. If you have been out of the state, have any flu-like symptoms. have tested positive for COVID within the last 14 days, or been in contact with someone from out of state or who has tested positive or who is sick please do not come into the Flight Center. We want to minimize any potential exposure to any of our members and want to ensure we stay healthy and can continue flying.
We are limited to 3 airplanes at this time. If demand is high for flying, we can make changes in January, but for now, we are limited to 3 T-41Cs.
Any questions, please contact the Flight Center at 846-1072.
Safety Meeting slides will continue to be distributed on the first Wednesday of each month as we have been doing.
There will not be a December Flight Center Potluck / Safety Meeting.
Monthly Safety Grams are here.
