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.

TOPICS FOR EVERY AVIATION ENTHUSIAST - Pilots and Public are welcome

Seminar “FLYING THE NY SFRA (Special Flight Rules Area)”
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.

Seminar “Flying Low and Slow Up the East Coast"
Topic: Flying Low and Slow Up the East Coast. The true story of flying a Piper Cub from Key West to New England and lessons learned.
Description: Cross-country flying is an amazing experience but it involves careful planning regarding the aircraft, weather, route, and pilot. Join CFI, tailwheel instructor, and FAASTeam Representative Jason T. hear what it was like to fly 1600 miles in a 1941 Piper Cub from the Florida Keys to New England, in the middle of winter. As the adventure is told (including incredible aerial footage) we’ll look at the lessons learned in regards to making sure your aircraft is capable, long-range weather planning, fuel management, back to basics flight planning, navigation, and how to plan for and deal with the unexpected. Please join us for this unique and exciting presentation for pilots and non-pilots alike. Discover why the Piper Cub might just be the best cross-country flying machine ever made!
