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 “This can’t be happening!”
Speaker- Nina Anderson
A look at the vulnerabilities pilots may have and how they can contribute to accidents presented by FAASTeam representative Nina Anderson. All pilots experience “senior moments” or denial of looming problems during flight that can be harbingers of not so nice things to come. This workshop will help to identify the reasons for those mental breakdowns and how to recognize them before things “go south”.

12:00 - 1:30PM
Seminar “Adventures in Aviation – Air Racing Across the Country"
Speakers - Teresa Camp and Denise Robinson
“Come join Teresa Camp and Denise Robinson as they share their adventures from the 99’s Air Race Classic. The race was a VFR 2700 mile cross-country event flown by teams of all female pilots that started in Prescott, AZ and finished 4-days later in Daytona Beach, FL.” An early tradition dating back to Amelia Earhart.

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.
