Brief Description:

Nut Tree Airport is the gateway to a fun, and memorable day in Vacaville. If you are a fan of great ice cream, cuisine, or shopping at this destination. It is only a short cross-country trip away from the Bay Area.

San Carlos Flight Center invites student pilot Brandan Dadoun to discuss what pilots need to know when flying into the Nut Tree Airport (KVCB). He will include insights about operating within close vicinity of Travis Air Force Base, a highly active alert area conducting hundreds of military operations daily; along with how to safely operate at the Nut Tree Airport. He’ll cover the different entry/exit procedures to which pilots must follow while operating at VCB, noise abatement procedures, airport lighting, and general operations at a non-towered airport. He will also highlight the importance of flight following allowing for seamless transit and traffic advisories across the active alert area. Lastly, Brandan will also talk about what to do after landing at Nut Tree including airport amenities, aircraft parking, restaurants, and access to the shopping outlets. 

Join us to learn more about this easy-to-access, quick day trip from the Bay Area, all while enjoying splendid food, and splurging on your best attire.

Brandan Dadoun is a student pilot solo and SCFC’s Seminar Coordinator. He has completed the majority of his flight training at SCFC with over 100 flight hours and has extensive flying experience throughout much of California. He is an advocate for getting youth involved in aviation and is actively involved in many aviation programs himself. When he's not flying himself he enjoys teaching others.
