This Friday, Saturday and maybe Sunday (Easter) will be your time to get your spring checkout flights completed. You will not be able to fly until you have one. This is a new safety culture procedure that requires all members to have a spring checkout. It typically will require 3 flights. Tow maneuvers such as Box the Wake and Slack Rope, straight and turning stalls, slow flight, steep turns, spiral dive recovery, PTT and precision landings.
I have heard from 3 instructors and their intentions for the coming season provided AIG renews our insurance. I’m still waiting to hear from the rest of you. As of now, we are holding off on accepting any new club members due to a lack of instructors willing to instruct this coming season.
Also, our fleet utilization committee is assessing the need for each club ship and will make recommendations to the BOD. Flight instruction need is part of the equation.
Hope to see you Friday or Saturday.
