Destination San Diego

Due to the COVID-19 public health crisis, this seminar will only be available for online viewing. IN-PERSON ATTENDANCE WILL NOT BE PERMITTED.**
|San Diego is a classic Californian destination that boasts pristine beaches, attractions, and beautiful weather. With gorgeous surroundings it’s easy for a pilot to get distracted and not consider the complex airspace and local aeronautical challenges.
San Carlos Flight Center invites Instrument Rated Pilot Brandan Dadoun to discuss what pilots flying to San Diego need to know. With San Diego being a long-cross country from the Bay Area, pilots can put their cross country planning skills to the test. In this seminar Brandan will cover unique flight planning considerations for San Diego including local arrival and departure procedures, route selection for IFR and VFR pilots including TEC routes, transiting the San Diego Bravo airspace, W&B and fuel planning, and services/fees/facilities at multiple locations. Brandan will also cover the advantages of flying into one of the many San Diego airports including: SAN, MYF, and SEE. While concluding on the various activities one can do while enjoying a gorgeous weekend getaway.
Join us for this unique opportunity to delve into operations at the airports within the vicinity of San Diego, and how you can fly there safely and efficiently.
