May 11 (Wed) 7:00pm Rusty Pilot Seminar

Event Date: 
Wednesday, May 11, 2016 - 7:00pm to 9:00pm

Haven't flown for a while? A really long while? It's a pretty common tale in aviation. A pilot gets his or her license then something in life intervenes to interrupt flying, sometimes for years at a time. Skills atrophy. Confidence erodes. The pilot becomes "rusty". But the dream of someday getting back into the air lingers, waiting to be fulfilled.

It's 2016! Time for all Rusty Pilots to shake off the cobwebs and build a pathway back into the air. Join us and together we will go over the steps you'll need to take to get back into the PIC seat.

We'll outline a path that we regularly use at San Carlos Flight Center to return Rusty Pilots to fully-oiled PIC competency.

Note: The seminar is a high-level overview and won't provide answers to individual-specific situations. If you'd like 1-on-1 answers, you are encouraged to contact the Flight Center and ask to speak with a flight instructor. We can help you from there.

Dan Dyer is Chief Pilot of San Carlos Flight Center and has been instructing for 12 years, first in helicopters and now in airplanes. He has almost 4,000 flight hours and is the Bay Area's local expert in crosswind landing instruction. He regularly speaks on advanced ground school topics, and was one of the founders of the Bay Area FlyOutGroup - a social club of over 400 pilots that meet for lunches, dinners, and other fun aerial adventures.
