Hi Pilots,

We have scheduled two PALS classes this month, Tuesday PM 4/23 – Recurrency, an annual requirement for endorsed pilots in order to continue reimbursement and Tuesday PM 4/30 – Initial training.  These will be in WebInAr format [GoToMeeting] and the classes will include updated information for the reimbursement formula.  If you would like to enroll and continue your fuel reimbursement, please call the Mid Island Desk, or for more information you can contact PALS directly at the numbers below. 


Recurrency Training:

                Tuesday 4/23       6pm-7:15pm

The Recurrency Training is approximately 1 hour and costs $50, does not require a logbook endorsement, but does require a short test to be returned to Mike/Dean.  Upon completion you/PALS will be emailed a Recurrency Certificate, good for another year.


Initial Training:

                               Tuesday 4/30       6pm-8:30pm

The Initial Training is 2 ½ hours and costs $100, this does require a logbook endorsement which will be mailed to you upon completion. 


We ask that pilots leave credit card and contact information [telephone and email] with the Dispatcher at time of scheduling.  We will debit your card and send you the GoToMeeting access information 1-2 days prior to the class once we confirm the number of attendees and the class a-go.  We also suggest you log into www.GoToMeeting at least 15-20 minutes early to make sure you have all the software to attend the webinar.  Any problems, you can call us here at Mid Island[masked]-5400.  If we have to cancel for any reason after taking payment, we will refund you the amount or hold for a future session [pilot’s choice].
