Title:
A Beginners Guide to Flying the SF Bay Tour
Topic:
Flying the Bay Tour is a spectacular treat for Bay Area Pilots, only when it's done safely. Join us and find us how.
Date and Time:
Saturday, October 31, 2020, starting at 12:00 Pacific Daylight Time (13:00 MDT, 14:00 CDT, 15:00 EDT, 09:00 HST, 11:00 AKDT, 12:00 Arizona, 19:00 GMT)
Speaker(s):
Dan Dyer
Brief Description:

Flying in the San Francisco Bay area is spectacular, a real privilege for local pilots. The Pacific Ocean, a dramatic coastline, 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"?  And, how was it affected by last year's Bravo airspace changes? How did it affect the Bay Tour, and what new implementations will require pilots need to take to account? Founder of the SCFC Dan Dyer will examine the airspace, explain the "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 and suggested by ATC.  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, want to imagine the different sights you’ll see, or just want to improve your understanding of local airspace customs and procedures, please join us for this popular seminar.

 

Dan Dyer is the founder of the San Carlos Flight Center, and has built the motto of Safety, Community, and Adventure for over 8 years.  Dan was an instructor for 15 years, accumulated over 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.  Find out more about Dan at www.sancarlosflight.com or contact him at dan@sancarlosflight.com
