Van Nuys Propeller Aircraft Association President’s Message

Dear Association Member:

I’d like to take a few moments to thank you for your membership in this great organization. Membership means that you have a local advocacy group that will fight for you and will work hard to protect the propeller tenants at the Van Nuys Airport. With the Prop Park well underway with many of you already in your hangars, I would like to hear from you on what else the Prop Association can do for you. Please take a few moments to follow the link below and complete our brief survey. Your feedback is extremely important and will help guide the actions of the Association for years to come.

Changes being implemented in 2016 are intended to help strengthen our community and bring our membership together. These changes include a quarterly newsletter detailing items and activities at VNY and surrounding areas, monthly barbecues, monthly pilot seminars, and much more.

I am looking forward to working with you toward a strong and prosperous propeller aircraft community at the Van Nuys Airport.

Sincerely,

Jason Price

Back From The Aviation Expo

Published by:

Hi Everyone,

I have returned from the Flying magazine’s First annual Aviation Expo for 2014 and it was great! I have been involved in a lot of trade shows and this one was extremely well planned and prepared for. After the AOPA decided to downsize their events after 2013, Flying Magazine decided to take the reins. And they really did it big. The Parade of Planes proceeded, as in previous years, with several dozen aircraft roaring down the streets from Palm Springs Airport to the Convention Center where they were parked for the duration of the show.

Inside, there were a wealth of exhibitors, Keynote presentations and intelligent seminars on relevant topics, including several areas of flight safety, the debate about the FAA and their position on UAV’s in commercial airspace, and disruptive technologies. It’s not what you think…disruptive in the sense that it forever changes the way pilots and aviation proceeds in the future, very cool concepts.

flight simulation was well presented with the highlight event being the IMC Club’s Instrument proficiency area where pilots took to a flock of Redbird Simulators for 3 levels of instrument landings. ATC was provided by Pilot Edge which made for an extremely realistic experience. You could actually get signed off by participating.
