|Due to the COVID-19 public health crisis, this seminar will only be available for online viewing. IN-PERSON ATTENDANCE WILL NOT BE PERMITTED.**
Nut Tree Airport is the gateway to a fun, and memorable day in Vacaville. If you are a fan of great ice cream, cuisine, or shopping this is the destination for you. It is only a short cross-country trip away from the Bay Area.
San Carlos Flight Center invites student pilot Brandan Dadoun to discuss what pilots need to know when flying into the Nut Tree Airport. He will include insights about operating within close vicinity of Travis Air Force Base, a highly active alert area conducting hundreds of military operations daily; along with how to safely operate at the Nut Tree Airport. He’ll cover the different entry/exit procedures to which pilots must follow while operating at VCB, noise abatement procedures, airport lighting, and general operations at a non-towered airport. He will also highlight the importance of flight following allowing for seamless transit and traffic advisories across the active alert area. Lastly, Brandan will also talk about what to do after landing at Nut Tree including airport amenities, aircraft parking, restaurants, and access to the shopping outlets.
Join us to learn more about this easy-to-access, quick day trip from the Bay Area, all while enjoying splendid food, and splurging on your best attire.
