Fitchburg Pilots Association EAA Chapter 1454 Monthly Meetup

  • Apr 8, 2014 · 6:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

This month as a follow up to last month ATC talk on TFR's we Will have the pilot who is in the jet looking for the ones violating the TFR, Major Russ Piggott. He keeps his personal plane here at Kfit. Prior to joining Boston JetSearch in 2013, Russ spent 14 years as a full-time fighter pilot in the United States Air Force. He served 10 years on active duty where he flew F-16s in various locations across the world as an instructor pilot and mission planning cell director. In 2003, Russ flew 33 combat sorties in the initial days of the Iraqi conflict, including the first night of the air campaign. In[masked], Russ was the F-16 demonstration pilot and flew high performance maneuvers at airshows around the world. In 2009, he joined the Air National Guard, transitioned to flying the F-15 in 2011, and currently holds the rank of Major, serving as a mission-ready F-15 pilot on a part-time basis flying out of Westfield/Barnes Air National Guard Base...'


As always, food at 6:00 and meeting at 7:00.

Where else can you have this much excitement for $30 bucks a year?

    Thanks to our guest speaker, Major Russ Piggott, on air to air intercepts. Best advice, plan your flights, check for TFR's, and follow instructions if intercepted.
