November 1 (Wed) 7:00pm Flying the Bay Tour

Event Date: 
Wednesday, November 1, 2017 - 7:00pm

Flying in the San Francisco Bay area is spectacular, a real privilege for local pilots. The Pacific Ocean, a dramatic coast line, beautiful hills, and many famous landmarks. As pilots, we are afforded a rare bird's eye view that we long to share with our friends and family.

So what exactly is a "Bay Tour"? SCFC Chief Pilot Dan Dyer will explain the various meanings of the phrase "Bay Tour" and how a pilot can accomplish one in the safest, simplest, most enjoyable manner.

We'll review the various overlapping airspaces in the area, the territories for each local ATC facility, and the routings most commonly used by Flight Center pilots. You'll learn what options are available to you even if SQL ATIS has the phrase "San Francisco is not taking surface area transitions."

If you are new to the Bay area, or just want to improve your understanding of local airspace customs and procedures, please join us for this popular seminar.

Dan Dyer is Chief Pilot of San Carlos Flight Center and has been instructing for 11 years, first in helicopter and now in airplanes. He has almost 4,000 flight hours and is the Bay Area's local expert in crosswind landing instruction. He is known for finding simple and innovative ways to explain complex topics and regularly speaks on advanced ground school topics.  He co-founded and manages the Bay Area FlyOutGroup - a social club of over 400 pilots that meet for lunches, dinners, and other fun aerial adventures.
