Safety: Expanding Your Horizons

The FAASTeam Topic of the Month for February Expanding Your Horizons. It talks about the advantages of trying new things instead of flying the same hour over and over again. If you are interested in doing a wings presentation for your flying club’s next meeting, please email us to see if we are available. The Wings for Clubs program offers a great way to bolster your club’s safety culture and is a great way to spice up your safety talks! To learn more about this program, give a listen to our Flying Clubs Radio episode covering it.

The topic of this month’s Club Connector is all about what is involved with adding a new aircraft to your club fleet. Be sure to check out this month’s Question of the Month which goes into the details of adding a novel aircraft to your club.
