Power Familiarisation Flying - 16 Feb

Cadets will once again have the opportunity to fly in Powered Aircraft!

Who: All Cadets, with priority for cadets who have never flown.

When: 16 Feb 2020. Varous timeslots are available.

Where: Please be aware that in the past drivers have arrived at the wrong side of the airport.  Please direct drivers to 1500 Thomas Argue Rd, Carp, ON K0A 1L0. This is on the West side of the airport, and is accessed from March Rd. If drivers attempt to follow signs and enter via Carp rd, they will find themselves on the wrong side of the airport, and unable to access the correct building.

Dress: Cadets must come dressed for a winter flight.  This includes a proper winter jacket, gloves, hat and footwear.  In the unlikely event that the aircraft and its occupants need to wait somewhere without heat, everyone needs to be warm.  We may refuse to send cadets flying who (in our opinion) are not properly dressed. Bring a water bottle, snacks and things to do when not flying. 

Weather Call: Flying is a weather-dependent event. Please check the website before attending.
