Safety Seminar, 20 Jan 2016, Juniper Hill Golf Course

13 Jan 2016 - (r1 - 13 Jan 2016 - 21:43:11 - GeorgeClark)

George Clark writes: ... FAASTeam Rep. Kenneth MacDonald and FAASTeam Program Mgr. Jim Adams will present this eye opening safety seminar on preventing loss of aircraft control. We will review and discuss loss of control accidents and see how they could have been prevented.

Every year countless aircraft depart from controlled flight, unfortunately many pilots do not recover control prior to impacting the ground, resulting in serious injuries or death. This is an interactive seminar, so bring your questions.

This seminar hosted by Worcester Area Pilots Association and Juniper Hill Golf Course. The Juniper Grill will be open at 6:00 PM for food and drinks prior to the start of the seminar. Seminar starts at 7:00 PM.

George Clark writes: ... The annual WAPA Fly-in picnic will be held at Gardner Airport. We will be flying it to an active micro-jet airshow, so be sure to announce on CTAF and wait for word from the Air Boss that the runway is clear. The fly-in previous years has been a very enjoyable event. Everyone is welcome. If for some reason last minute weather results in a change in plan, we'll announce it on WAPA unicom. and update this posting.

Wing Commander Tom Neil – who was 19 during the Battle provides veteran commentary (by video) as to how it really was in 1940.

WAPA Flyout to Turners Falls 6/18

18 Jun 2014 - (r2 - 27 Jun 2014 - 23:08:28 - GeorgeClark)

George Clark writes: ... The fly-out this evening to Turners Falls Airnav:0B5 is still looking like a go. Plan to depart your local airports to meet up between 6 and 6:30 pm. Winds are a bit high - gusting into the low 20's, but are expected to diminish into the evening. Not much developing on RADAR yet either so the weather is looking good. And don't forget that Turners Falls is an active parachute jump zone, so be sure to listen and watch for canopies

We'll update this page on any last minute go / no-go decision. ... Fly-out went off without a hitch. 3 planes / 5 members arrived for a chili dogs and dessert. We'll try to do another flyout on Wednesday July 2nd.
