The Latest News

It's an Archer!

Texins Flying Club welcomes N4135W into the fleet. We have some squawks and instructor training to work on this next week, but the plane is here and will soon be available on the scheduler. Thanks to everyone who worked to make this happen.

This plane has many cool features including an Aspen glass PFD. Full ADS-B, an autopilot, two G-430W GPS units, an engine monitor, and air-conditioning. This plane looks sharp and flies great according to our pilots who flew it over 850nm to bring it here.  Get started with the Aspen EFD 1000 by viewing this training video created by our own James Ballard.

The Department of Homeland Security and the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) continue to monitor reports on potential terrorist threats in the United States. While there is no specific or credible intelligence that al-Qa'ida or its affiliates are plotting attacks in the United States to coincide with the ten year anniversary of 9/11 , we remain at a heightened state of vigilance and security measures are in place to detect and prevent plots against the United States should they emerge.

 Safer Skyes Through Education  

"FAA Exam - Test for Student or Instructor?"

Topic: This NAFI MentorLIVE broadcast covers methods to help your  student and you gain more confidence when preparing for an FAA Exam

On Wednesday, June 20, 2018 at 19:00 Central Daylight Time (17:00 PDT, 18:00 MDT, 20:00 EDT, 14:00 HST, 16:00 AKDT, 17:00 Arizona, 00:00 GMT)

Select Number: CE0383663

Description:  Do you feel like a nervous expectant parent when sending your student for an FAA Knowledge Test or Practical Exam? Does your student arrive in a cold sweat, biting nails, and twitching before the exams with a performance limiting case of "check-ride-itis"?  

You will discover tips and lessons learned on topics such as: identifying and overcoming challenges specific to each student, student knowledge versus memorization, the role of published materials, encouraging nervous students, and more.  


Viewer input is encouraged via chat on the NAFI MentorLIVE page (link below) or NAFI Facebook page.  Be sure to bring your questions and share lessons learned during the broadcast!

"All New Non-towered Airport Ops for 2018"

Topic: Just when you thought you had non-towered airport operations down to a science!

On Thursday, June 28, 2018 at 19:00 Eastern Daylight Time (16:00 PDT, 17:00 MDT, 18:00 CDT, 13:00 HST, 15:00 AKDT, 16:00 Arizona, 23:00 GMT)
 

Select Number: EA6583785

Description:  In March of 2018, the FAA announced significant changes to the way we operate at non-towered airports.  The new procedures call attention to regulatory requirements, recommended operations, and communication procedures.  In this important webinar, we will brief you on traffic patterns, communications phraseology, and flight and ground operations involving aircraft, lighter-than-air aircraft, gliders, parachutes, rotorcraft, and ultralight vehicles.  Although the new procedures primarily address Part 91 operators, this information is extremely valuable to UAS operators and all who operate on or in the vicinity of non-towered airports, and all should attend.
