Training Booking Calendar - find it here

  1. For 2017, Saturdays is our only main day at the field.  We are likely to have 2 instructors (me, Ryan and/or Nick) on deck for most of the day. Bryan and Ken may also said around to big-winch-op.  Tandems will be happening on Saturday afternoons as well so if you decide to come out then, you need to be 100% independent and patient and ready to slip in line between tandems.
  2. Sundays will be only as our schedules, demand and weather allow. See the notes on the calendar. But don't let this keep you from booking in the calendar on Sundays as if I don't see any demand, we won't make the effort to be out nor will we know who has interest.
  3. Weekday evenings are pretty tight for Mark early in the season - Mark's availability is nil on Tuesdays-to-Thursdays thru until the end of June.  Book as you like tho as nothing motivates me more than seeing demand you never know when schedules change.
  4. Each person can only have six sessions at a time - so don't hog all the sessions!  :) You are EXPECTED to be there if you signup and don't cancel within 24hrs. Manage your sessions well. Deletions are logged....so we know! If you miss a session, we ask that you bring a six-pack of beer out for the cooler...it ends up getting shared anyways so it isn't a big penalty.
  5. Be sure to watch for updates on our Instinct Pilots FB group.  Assume that NO sessions are a go unless they are confirmed on there.  Feel free to ask for confirmation anytime.  We'd hate to see anyone waste gas driving out to find out the session is a no-go.  If any doubts, txt the group txt number (it is a new number this year so update your contact lists)
  6. You do need a separate account for the Booking Calendar - it is separate from the eCommerce site AND separate from the old website (the one you use for exams still).  You can create an account for the booking calendar here

Wind Forecasts Use the handy chart below to give an idea of the upcoming forecast for the next few days. We mainly want the light blue bars for the light winds we need and always want the gust factor to be minimal. Once you graduate, the gusts you can handle will be greater but we rarely even tow intermediate pilots in winds over 15kmh.

Exams The rating exams are on the old website and will be found at here   You will need a separate user name for that website.  You can login here.  To create an account, please email Mark and ask.  You can reset your password here
