VFR charts pack an extraordinary amount of material and represent a 3 dimensional world of terrain and airspaces in 2 dimensions.  They describe graphically the earth as it looks to us pilots from the air.  And no matter how much we study them and how good we get at interpreting them there is always something new or some little nuance that we didn’t realize. Lastly, they are fun.  Who doesn’t enjoy looking at a map, especially an aviation one.

Join San Carlos Flight Center CFI Stephen Heesacker as he gives a round school refresher. He will actively involve the audience in this fun review of VFR charts and point out interesting facts that you then can go out and impress your friends. Don’t miss this enjoyable afternoon with Stephen.
