I didn’t know we can fly on Sundays.

October 5, 2010

One of the best things to do on a nice sunny Sunday is to go out flying! As long as you are checked out on our aircraft, either a helicopter or an airplane and you have received the aircraft flight training check out, you will be able to rent our aircraft to fly. Rarely, but sometimes, restrictions may apply but if you have any questions, please call us to find out your status.  If you have not been flying consistently, then we may require an aircraft check out to ensure your safety.

“Currency” is one of the most important factors for safe flying.  Keep track of your currency and be safe and legal. It’s always a good idea to go up with one of our instructors to make sure you are kept up to date with the current NOTAMs that you might not be aware of. For example, do you know the phraseology “line up and wait”?
