FLIGHT TRAINING INSTRUCTORS NEEDED!!
We pride ourselves on being a training club. We only have a couple of volunteer instructors to help our newbie pilots learn and improve their flying skills.
Both Andre and Ed are in need of support. We need some experienced pilots who would like to be flight instructors. Instructions are by appointment only now so it is easier to schedule lessons. You only need to instruct when you can. You can set your own schedule.
If you can help us out please contact President Tyler West or stop by at a business meeting. The club really needs your support!

It appears that the FAA has rescinded the registration requirements for "drones". But word is that future requirements will be reinstated soon.
