Our goal is to spotlight the Meriden Markham Municipal Airport and to
showcase aircraft and Public Safety providers, both local and State.
 A local airport has the potential to impact the economic development
of a City. Meriden is on the verge of seeing the greatest improvements
 it has ever known: from the new train station and transit-oriented district
 to the daylighting of Harbor Brook and a new downtown ‘green’. Now is
the time to draw others in to see what Meriden is all about! Our airport
is a hidden 'gem' in our city – capable of helping to improve economic
growth and quality of life issues. Public safety is of utmost importance
to all our residents. We are proud to highlight these individuals. We are
looking forward to this educational and fun day for all.

SEMINAR SCHEDULE MMK FLY-IN & PUBLIC SAFETY FESTIVAL


TOPICS FOR EVERY AVIATION ENTHUSIAST - Pilots and Public are welcome
LOCATION: QUONSET HANGAR

10:30 - 11:30AM - FAA SAFETY TEAM WINGS CREDIT
Seminar “FLYING THE NY SFRA (Special Flight Rules Area)”
Speaker: Doug Stewart
Description: Flying the NY SFRA is an effective way to transition the New York Metropolitan area and is also an awe-filled scenic flight. However, the risks are numerous and the flight could become awful rather than awe-filled. This seminar presents all the rules, hazards and risks, and then shows how to fly the route safely.
Learn all the important, as well as mandated, reporting points, the difference between “transient” and “local” altitudes, where and how the helicopters operate, the proper frequencies to use along with suggested proper phraseology. The knowledge gained from this seminar will allow you to fly the corridor safely and with reduced risk to all aircraft in the airspace.

12:00 - 1:30PM - FAA SAFETY TEAM WINGS CREDIT
Seminar “TRIPLE TREE and FLORENCE"
Speaker: Graeme Smith
Description: Graeme Smith is in the habit of flying open ended cross country trips with a tent and sleeping bag. It’s not the final destination – it’s the adventures along the way – that make up the trip. Come see one such “adventure” to the Triple tree Fly-In in South Carolina and how the approach of Hurricane Florence meant that cutting and running early to stay ahead of the storm turned a 650 mile trip home into a 7 day slog under the constant threat of “Get-There-It-Is”..

2:00 - 3:00PM
Seminar "So You Want To Learn How To Fly An Airplane!"
Presented by Meriden Aviation Services
Seminar on the requirements for getting your private pilot license. Learn about your training options, your FAA knowledge requirements. Flight lessons and ground school. The FAA checkride. Flying in the northeast with your license. Advanced training and ratings. Q+A ask our instructors your questions!
