The first seminar, ‘How to Form and Operate a Flying Club’, will be held on Saturday August 27th from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. Participation is limited to 30 people. The seminar is presented in conjunction with ‘Kiss the Sky Flying Club’, a start-up flying club based in Kissimmee.

The second event is an ‘AOPA Rusty Pilots Seminar’, scheduled for Saturday, October 22nd at 9:00 a.m. As the title implies, the seminar is for any certificated pilot who is no longer current and needs a good refresher as part of their flight review. Each participant who completes the seminar will receive a logbook endorsement for the ground portion of their flight review. Attendees may also schedule flights to complete their flight review, on site. This seminar will be held at Sunstate Aviation, 3008 Patrick Street, off of Thacker Avenue in Kissimmee.
