Introduction

There are significant changes to our training clinic schedule in 2019. We have consolidated the Spring and Summer periods into one continuous period that began on Saturday, March 9, 2019 and will end on Saturday, June 29, 2019, the date of our last scheduled clinic. The relative early start of the training season takes advantage of the predominantly good flying weather in some areas of the country and allows programming a second clinic in locations where the demand for training is higher, and lead pilots are available to organize these clinics. In addition, we want to avoid extending the training period into July, way too close to the mass arrival flight, a time when everyone's attention should be on planning and preparing for the trek to Juneau.

As always, we urge all of our pilots to avoid postponing their training until the last weeks before the arrival. We encourage everybody to get the training out of the way early. You might want to attend a second clinic later in the season, that is perfectly acceptable and even encouraged, but get your first clinic of the season out of the way early. Take into consideration that weather is always an unknown and unpredictable variable. As you all know, weather forecasts are only good for a few days ahead of time. Invariably, clinics will have to be cancelled due to adverse weather conditions. Don't let the weather keep you from training to fly the mass arrival.

Many factors are involved in planning a training clinic, the most critical one being the availability of volunteer host and lead pilots at a specific location. We encourage our more experienced pilots to volunteer, train and become lead pilots to conduct clinics at their home base locations.
