Time: 10:00AM – 2:00PM
This year’s meeting will not disappoint – we have lined up a great speaker and discussions, and once again will be providing lunch and refreshments as part of the meeticalpilots_thumb_driveng.

And, everyone attending the CALPILOTS Annual Meeting will receive a free 2GB thumb drive loaded with pertinent airport and aviation information to make it easy for you to take it home with you, and anywhere else you  might need this valuable information. Just the thing to take along to your local aviation meetings and to educate yourself or others on the importance of your airport(s).

The topic will be “Using Technology to Make Flight Planning Easier and Your Flight Safer“.

The iPad and applications such as Foreflight and Wing X Pro are becoming the standard in flight planning and monitoring enroute flight – not to mention up to the minute weather. Once you experience them you understand why their popularity has grown so fast. This is your chance to learn how about this technology, or have your questions regarding it answered.

Come to the meeting to see it close up, get some hands on experience, and get all of you questions answered. You will be amazed at the paradigm shift in flight planning and monitoring these new tools have brought to general aviation.

Hotel Accommodations: There is a hotel right on the field if you want to make it a weekend with the family.
