With such a long time away from flying, many of us can’t wait to get back in the air.  Some of you might have used this time to brush up on ground school skills, or plan your next big trip.  That helps keep you in an aviation frame of mind, but all of us will need to brush up on our flying skills with our CFI’s once we return.  How does a safe, competent pilot approach restarting flight activities after a period of months away from the cockpit?

As SCFC eyes reopening the club to member flights, San Carlos Flight Center has invited CFI Mariana May Barrato to chart a course through recurrency.  What are the safest, most efficient ways for pilots to get back in the air.  What are the regulatory requirements?  What knowledge areas likely need attention?  How can a pilot structure the first few flights back to build back full capabilities.  In this seminar, Mari will cover those topics, and provide an outlook on what to expect coming back into flying.

With many of us begging to take to the skies, we must take into consideration the safest ways to do so.  Come join us and find out.
