SOSA Calendar of Events
Below is a calendar of events at SOSA. Few dates are still being discussed and will be provided soon, so we can plan ahead and enjoy the season as much as possible.
Every pilot will have to perform the following exercises on their check flights:
- Pre-take-off and landing checks done
- Box the wake
- Steep turns 45° at constant speed left and right
- Circuit entered between 750 to 850 feet AGL
- Approach speed on final must be within +10/-5 kts of stated airspeed
- Land in one third of the runway length
- Demonstrate good airmanship through out
- Demonstrate knowledge of airspace (i.e. Corridor, Hamilton and Waterloo airspace)
Spin check policy
- Every pilot must have had a spin check before June 30th and before they can fly the LS4, Junior, or Puchacz, Duo as P1.
To add an individual item to this calendar, please contact Rob Russell. If you're a board member, I'll teach you how to do it yourself.
