Written by Mike Brogley   
Friday, 12 August 2016
The Santa Clara County Airports Department has a new web form for requesting airport maintenance or reporting issues at E16 or RHV - just go to http://www.countyairports.org/RepairRequest.html, fill out and submit the form, and the issue you've reported will be automatically transmitted into the Airports Department staff's work queue. Airports head honcho Eric Peterson says using this form will make it easier for the Airports team to track issues and make sure they get resolved.

Written by Mike Brogley   
Friday, 24 June 2016

Join us for the July meeting of the South County Airport Pilots Association on Tuesday, July 12th, 2016. We gather at 5:30 pm, serve dinner at 6:00 pm ($15 members, $20 non-members, Guests Welcome!), hold a brief business meeting at 6:45 pm, and begin our speaker presentation at 7:00pm. The meeting has been approved for WINGS credit by the FAA! Our topic this month is:

Best Practices in NORCAL Airspace with Mark Thompson and Steve Whorton

Most pilots talk on the radio with NORCAL, which handles air traffic in the greater Bay Area and Sacramento, for flight following and IFR services.

Ever wonder where they are, what they do and how they do it? Our speaker will share information from the inside about NORCAL operations and how to make the most of services available to pilots with emphasis on safe VFR practices. We will also hear about the coming use of ADS-B for traffic visibility and management.

Bring your questions! We will get Q&A time with two air traffic controllers who serve our region.
