Upcoming Fly-in

Flaming Brisket 2016

Flaming Brisket 2016The June trip is the annual Flaming Brisket lunch fly-in to Agua Dulce (L70). Mitch will be slow smoking a couple of whole beef briskets, and providing rolls and sandwich fixings. Bring your appetite, a side dish for 4 people and your beverages, and show up at the GAC at 10 for the preflight briefing. The cost is $5 per person. Sign up online, so Mitch knows how much to cook!

Upcoming Dinner Program

time vortexIn our first DAF Safety Video presented in July 2014 ("Airplane vs. Volcano"), DAFers were shown some important tricks and tips for flying around active volcanoes. The second feature in this series, to be shown at our June 15th dinner meeting, will help you become more comfortable in flying around and through time portals. You may be thinking that time portals are so rare - why should I be interested in this? But just think about all the pilots you know that seem stuck in the 1950's. It happens, my friends, it happens. As with all DAF Safety Video Presentations, this will not be eligible for any FAA Wings credit whatsoever.  (NOTE: this video was originally scheduled to be shown in September of last year but was postponed due to lower-than-typical turnout for that meeting).
