On March 25 some 30 of us made a visit to the NOAA office and enjoyed an excellent presentation by

The Air Force did not shoot it down.




Aviation Safety and Reporting System


Have you ever broken an FAR?  Have you ever wandered into class C or D airspace without notifying the controlling agency?  If you have that is when you need a “Get out of Jail card.”  Our June program will cover exactly that.  We will discuss the in’s and out’s of the NASA report better known as the ASRS report:  Aviation Safety Reporting System.  The meeting will be at Darcy’s on June 21.  Come at 6 for chow and chat with the program starting at 7.  Blue skies.

Please join us at Darcy's Restaurant and Spirits
Spokane Valley, WA
