Las Vegas's Premier Flying Club - Giving You A Reason to Fly!

DFC held our Hybrid June 2021 Safety Meeting. We were able to meet both online and in person. Josh Harkness presented on Mountain Flying and dealing with high density altitude. It was a great opportunity to learn about opportunities to explore new airports in the west but also the dangers of flying into canyons and high airports.

DFC held our Hybrid May 2021 Safety Meeting. We were able to meet both online and in person. Gary Kauffman, our club chief pilot, presented on Aircraft Leaning Procedures and High Density Altitude Operations.

Just in time for rising summer temperatures! We reviewed proper mixture leaning procedures and high density altitude considerations for operating airplanes safely and efficiently.

DFC held our online April safety seminar. Cathy Stockdale, the Henderson FAASafety Team representative, presented Why and How to Develop Personal Minimums.

Every pilot has his/her own comfort level and personal limitations already. Why do we need to formalize the process by creating personal minimums? In this webinar we discussed exactly why it is important to create an organized set of premeditated decisions for when we encounter weather, aircraft, or situations which stretch or surpass our abilities. We learned through scenario-based training how “front-loading” many of our decisions to the preflight phase gains us valuable time and mental energy. And finally we covered guidance and recommendations for creating our own personal minimums specific to our flying.

DFC held our online March safety seminar. Alan Zwift for the DFC safety committee presented about Weather or not to fly. Understanding weather and making good decisions about it is essential for safe GA flying.
