- Kevin Russo: My Life as a Pilot
When it comes to aviation, our own Kevin Russo needs no introduction. He has done it all. Kevin has kindly agreed to do a series of presentations for MAPA to share his knowledge and experience. This month, the focus will be topics that will inspire all pilots - why he wanted to fly, when he started to fly and how he pursued flying from private to military to airlines to airshows to general aviation. In addition, he will be available for Q&A on various topics of aviation. Starting to fly at age 15, flying over 100 missions in Desert Storm, landing C-17s on dirt roads in Afghanistan, flying A[masked] Airbus as a captain for American Airlines, leading a fleet of G-IVs for a private corporation are just a few examples of Kevin's experience. He also flies air shows with his SNJ-6/T-6 aircraft. Please visit http://www.kevinrussoairshows.com/pilot_bio.asp for a more detailed bio. Note: Many of us meet at Sunset Grille between 5:30 and 7:00 for dinner/drinks before the meeting. We look forward to seeing you there!
Uber-of-the-Skies?: a Recent Federal Court Case and Proposed Legislation. Please join us in a discussion led by Albert Pucciarelli who was part of a NYC Bar Association Committee that issued a report on this subject. The report was in response to a proposed Federal law that would overturn the FAA’s prohibition of apps that would create an “Ubers-of-the-Skies” flown by GA pilots. Note: Many of us meet at Sunset Grille between 5:30 and 7:00 for dinner/drinks before the meeting. We look forward to seeing you there!
