This week at Latitude 4/5

Hey folks,

The Rusty Pilot Seminar and BBQ was a great success.  We had almost 30 pilots show up for a ground instruction session, and most of them hadn’t flown in some time.  I’m happy to say that everyone enjoyed the presentation and dialogue, and several of the Rusty Pilots are going flying again with us.
  • Be sure to do a good preflight inspection.  Just because the person before you brought the airplane back doesn’t mean something new hasn’t cropped up.  To aid in knowing whether anything is new, I’ve added a Squawk List to the binder for each aircraft.  If you find what you think is a squawk, please check this list.  If you find a new squawk, PLEASE log it so that we can get it fixed!
  • When staging airplanes and pulling them out onto the ramp, please avoid parking them directly behind any jets that may be parked on the ramp.  If you’ll be moving it back in right away, that’s fine, but don’t park within 150 ft behind a jet for any length of time.  They may start up at any time.
  • Did you know?  Almost any pilots that find Latitude OTHER than through referrals find me through the Internet somehow.  You can help people find your favorite flight school by leaving online reviews!  If you have 5 minutes to spare, please go give Latitude a review at one of the following places.
Looks like GORGEOUS weather this week, come out and fly!
