Portland ATC Visits Willamette Aviation for Second Saturday!

At this month's Second Saturday Seminar, we are pleased to welcome PDX Tower controller Richard Kennington, who will offer an overview of Portland Tower and TRACON operations. Richard is an experienced air traffic controller, starting out in Salt Lake in 1999, and then transferring to Portland. He also has a background in general aviation, both as a certified pilot, and in regional airport management. Expect a thorough overview of Class C airspace, as well as a look at how to take advantage of controlled airspace and improve your pilot proficiency. Bring plenty of questions!
This month's Second Saturday gets underway on Dec. 14 at 1100 in the Education Hangar at Willamette Aviation. The event is certified for FAA Wings credit and there is no charge — drop by or sign up on the Wings website to save your spot. We'll see you there!


Short Finals…

· Not sure what would make the perfect holiday gift for a pilot you know, or for somebody who is ready to learn how to fly? A gift certificate from Willamette Aviation is perfect for any occasion. Just drop by our online gift certificate page, where you can select one of several Discovery Flight options (such as a flight over downtown Portland), ground school tuition, a customized flight lesson, or even a Pilot Shop spree. Add the certificate to your cart, print it out, and your aviation holiday shopping is done!
· We hope you enjoy this year's holiday season with family and friends. We are planning to be closed Christmas Day — let us know beforehand if you would like to schedule a plane for a scenic holiday flight. We are planning an exciting 2020, with even more seminars, ground schools, BBQs, and special events, and we'll be welcoming plenty of first solos and new certificated pilots along the way. We're looking forward to seeing you here as well.
