Title:
Ground School Refresher VFR Charts
Topic:
Do you know how to read VFR charts well? Join us for this great refresher.
Date and Time:
Wednesday, March 3, 2021, starting at 19:00 Pacific Standard Time (20:00 MST, 21:00 CST, 22:00 EST, 17:00 HST, 18:00 AKST, 20:00 Arizona, 03:00 GMT)
Speaker(s):
Mari May Baratto
Brief Description:

Do you know how to identify where certain VFR reporting waypoints are on a chart?  Do you know if the airport you are landing at has an operating beacon?  Do you know if the airport you are landing at has pilot controlled lighting, or lighting at all?  Or maybe if you just want a VFR chart refresher, this is the place for you to be.

VFR charts pack an extraordinary amount of material and represent a 3-dimensional world of terrain and airspaces in 2 dimensions.  They describe graphically the earth as it looks to us pilots from the air.  And no matter how much we study them and how good we get at interpreting them there is always something new or some little nuance that we didn’t realize. Lastly, they are fun.  Who doesn’t enjoy looking at a map, especially an aviation one?

Join a San Carlos Flight Center CFI Mari Baratto as she gives a ground school refresher.  She will actively involve the audience in this fun review of VFR charts and point out interesting facts that you then can go out and impress your friends.

 

Mari May Baratto is a Certified Flight Instructor and an FAA Instrument Ground Instructor with experience teaching both Private and Commercial Pilot students. A commercial rated pilot both in Brazil and in the United States, Mari has a diverse background flying through different airspaces, especially through one of the country’s most intimidating areas, the Washington DC SFRA. Mari has been recognized as a 2018 Distinguished Flight Instructor by AOPA.
