Next meeting: WINGS credit about AVL

The next meeting of the Western North Carolina Pilot’s Association is Tuesday, April 18th, beginning at 6:00. The FAA Safety Team (FAASTeam) will present a WINGS credit program entitled “Safe Operations in Class C Airspace at AVL,” a topic which should be of interest to any pilot interested in staying alive and healthy! 😉 The meal, generously donated by Signature Flight Support, will include Chick-fil-A sandwiches.

The meeting is in the Lacy Griffin aviation center. Parking continues to be affected by construction; if no space is available in front of the building, use the spaces in the adjacent maintenance yard (gate 24) or in the viewing area down the road. There are now also an additional 10 spaces available in the lot catty-cornered to the Lacy Griffin center.

Our next Fly-In Lunch will be on Saturday, April 22nd, to Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge airport (GKT, 54NM west northwest of AVL). If you need a ride, text Bill Whitehead at 828-676-5868; there may be a few empty seats available.
