|Santa Barbara, the city by the sea. Whether you travel here for the classic California getaway or just to watch the perfect sunset, Santa Barbara will not disappoint. This highly accessible location is a short flight away from the San Francisco Bay, and nearby to the major metropolis of Los Angeles. Taking on new cross-country destinations such as Santa Barbara challenge us to expand our skills and adapt to different scenarios.
San Carlos Flight Center invites Commercial Pilot Brandan Dadoun to discuss his recent flights into Santa Barbara and share with us what pilots flying into Santa Barbara Municipal Airport (KSBA) need to know. In this seminar, Brandan will summarize flight planning including special considerations for pilots operating in the vicinity of Santa Ynez mountains. He’ll help familiarize us with operations at a busy Class C airport with constantly changing weather patterns, and give tips on what to do after you land. Brandan’s demonstration will include the use of flight planning tools such as ForeFlight, SkyVector, and AviationWeather.Gov to ensure you have familiarized yourself with all aspects of your flight.
If you ever considered venturing to Santa Barbara, this will be an informative head start to your flight planning. We hope you can join us.
