Workshop: Cross Country Planning

Sat Mar 23 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

As pilots, we must know how to accurately plan for a cross-country flight. Join us for this in-person workshop at San Carlos Flight Center for a hands-on and scenario based learning experience. Chief Pilot Herb Patten will show attendees the important elements of successful cross-country flight planning and walk you through your planning of a flight. Throughout the workshop Herb will incorporate various situations and challenges, and provide direct support.

We encourage any student pilot working on their cross-country flight planning or rusty pilot to attend this workshop.
