• Discovery Flight!


03 June 2020: To satisfy the attendance requirement for the June Safety Meeting, email the Chief Flight Instructor at kirtlandflightcenter@gmail.com to ask for a copy of the briefing slides. After reviewing the slides and video, please send a brief e-mail detailing what was included in the slides and video to the Chief Flight Instructor. If you do not do this, you will need to meet the requirement by talking personally with the chief flight instructor before you can fly again. This is the same procedure as for previous remote Safety Meetings. Thanks!

01 June 2020: The Wing Commander opened many Force Support Squadron activities in some fashion.  That did not include any additional activity at the Flight Center.  We are still restricted to solo flying for members who are current. We have a proposal to the Wing Commander to resume normal operations.  As soon as we hear something we will let you know.

The June Safety Gram is available: What to include in a Safety Briefing for your first-time passengers!
