What we're about

A GATHERING OF PILOTS, BUILDERS AND DREAMERS TO EXPERIENCE THE WORLD OF AVIATION:

SUPPORTING AVIATION:

Our mission is to keep general aviation alive and well with a diverse group of aviation enthusiasts. Whether you are a pilot, builder, or just a dreamer you are welcome to join our group. Take a look at our scheduled meetups, both past and present, and we're sure you'll find something interesting. Welcome!

RAP SESSIONS:

Let's spend a couple hours talking about our personal GA experiences, safety tips, and anything we have learned from instructors, mentors, books and magazines about staying safe while flying small airplanes.

Ask pilots three questions concerning their most recent flight.

1. THREATS? Were there any distractions – either created by you or something else?

2. ERRORS? Did that threat or distraction cause an error?

3. UNDESIRED AIRCRAFT STATE? (UAS) Did the error cause your aircraft to end up in an undesired state? (i.e. off-field landing, wrong runway, wrong airport, got lost, or something worse)

Following the pilot's post flight briefing we’ll open the floor to all attendees for further discussion, comments and questions. This should be beneficial to all pilots and student pilots, and interesting to all others in attendance.

For now, meetups will be held at small airports around NE Ohio. Members are encouraged to fly-in, and are welcome from everywhere!

We’ll try to have a topic or theme to each meetup. Books, articles will be referred to, but each pilots' experience is most important!

Following are some topics we'll be discussing during meetups. If you have a topic not listed, post it and let us know.

Maneuvering Flight

Takeoff and Climb

Approach and Landing

Runway Incursion

Midair Collision

We’ll also be posting safety meetings that are held by Discover Aviation Center, discoveraviationcenter.org

Members are encouraged to post GA related events on the message board.

AVIATION SAFETY:

Discover Aviation safety seminars – usually the 1st Saturday of the month at Discover Aviation Center.

FAASTeam seminars when in the area.

Discussing safety at our RAP Sessions will be a high priority.

SATURDAY or SUNDAY BREAKFAST SOCIAL: usually during the non-flying season

These have been a great success as we all love good food, good friends, and good aviation talk.

SHARE-A-FLIGHT:

Share-a-Flight with another pilot, student pilot - or a dreamer. If you're planning a flight, and there's an empty seat, let the group know. You may get a dreamer to begin the road to becoming a pilot - and maybe some cost sharing too.

Upcoming events (5+)

John & Martha King to speak at ECOPA's annual Spring Banquet.

Skyland Pines Country Club

Every March the ECOPA Pilots Association has an annual Spring Banquet. The next banquet will be held on Friday March 22, 2019 in Canton, Ohio at Skyland Pines C.C. They always have a key speaker as part of the program and they are pleased to announce that the speakers will be John and Martha King! Tim Hartong of ECOPA has worked very hard for about 4 years to get them to come speak, but with their very busy schedules it hadn’t worked out. He's thrilled they have said yes and are coming to the banquet. If you have never listened to them speak then you don’t want to miss this coming years banquet, it’s going to be awesome! If you have had the pleasure, you know what Tim's talking about and will want to hear them again. So save the date and get your reservations in. You can learn about John and Martha at their website: KingSchools.com.
