October 2019 Safety Meeting @ Desert Flying Club
Oct 17 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm
October 17th Safety Meeting All are welcome to join Desert Flying Club at our monthly safety meeting Thursday, October 17th at 7pm. As usual, it will be held at our clubhouse. Everyone is welcome – members & non-members alike! At just over 60 miles from Henderson, NV, the Grand Canyon offers stunning views, great hiking trails, and amazing places to eat and visit. Because of the National Park, the FAA has established specific flight corridors and altitudes that must be flown around the canyon. Also, several the airports surrounding the canyon are over a mile above sea level, giving consideration for calculating density altitude. Many tour operators in the canyon create a challenge for GA pilots to see and avoid and navigate in their territory. Josh Harkenss and Kevin Kirkendall will discuss flying in and around the Grand Canyon. We will also be announcing our next Poker Run, which involves flying to several airports around the Grand Canyon. During this time of year, you’ll experience some of the best flying weather and opportunity to fly this scenic route we’ve developed, along with winning some great prizes. Come to the safety meeting to find out how to enter the Poker Run!
