Christmas Cheer

Two new mini-photo-sets of our annual Christmas events are up in the Galleries section.

One Tank Flights

Just added to our Events calendar page: "One Tank Flights," an interactive guide to events of interest within a couple hours' flight of our base airports. If you're looking for a day-trip destination, you'll probably find it here.

New photo sets!

We have no less than four new photo sets up in the Galleries section. Enjoy.

On Becoming A Pilot

Our illustrious President, Howard R., has penned a very good, accessible overview of what it takes to become a pilot, To Venture Into The World Of Flight With EFC. This essay details the investment in time, money, and commitment required to earn a private pilot's license. Recommended reading for anyone interested in learning to fly.

Photos from 2010 Safety Seminar

Over in Galleries, our illustrious Club President has contributed some photos from the 2010 EFC Safety Seminar, held at the Detroit Yacht Club. The annual Club seminar is a mini-lecture and knowledge exchange session in which we review operating procedures, discuss any safety-related incidents from the past year (of which there were exactly zero!), and hold an open forum for members to share their flying experiences. Oh, and enjoy very good meals and libations, thanks to the outstanding DYC catering staff. A good time was had by all, as usual!
