Redbird $1 Avgas Available For SAFE Seminar
When the Society of Aviation and Flight Educators announced last month it would hold its first pilot-seminar weekend in Texas at the end of October, Redbird Skyport's $1 avgas was promoted as an extra incentive to attend -- but that was before Redbird decided to end the promotion early. But Redbird has announced the offer stands for those who fly in for the SAFE Pilot Proficiency Project, Oct. 26-27, in San Marcos. "The fact that Redbird is carrying through proves their dedication to aviation safety, and we appreciate it," said Doug Stewart, executive director of SAFE. The weekend features a roster of educational seminars, plus time in Redbird's advanced motion flight simulators. Early registration discounts are available until Oct. 23.
Seminars on the roster include "Angle of Attack Awareness" with Rich Stowell; "Tailwheel Tips and Tricks," with Stowell and Stewart; "iPad Best Practices for Flight Planning," with Kay Greenfield; and a "Single Pilot IFR" seminar with Stewart. Participants will be eligible for flight and knowledge credits in the FAA WINGS program. AVweb's Mary Grady spoke with Stewart last month about the new event; click here for the podcast.
