"Keeping the Fun in Flying!"
"Whether you are inspired to learn how to fly or a seasoned pilot looking for the best way to stay
in the game we are here to help. We give sport aviation pilots FREE weekly articles,
podcast and videos on topics to keep you learning, growing and
staying engaged in the aviation community."  ~ TC FREEMAN

     We have gone back and forth with pilots and officials from the JAARS Airport (N52), Waxhaw, NC regarding the Operation Fly NC stamp. According to Eric at JAARS the stamp is in the outside phone box but hidden on an interior ledge in the box. Apparently area youth have been tampering with the box on occasion and they thought it best to conceal the stamp. 

     It has been a great 2015 Fall fly-in and airshow season! We had a great time speaking with folks at the Winston-Salem, Wilmington and Monroe, North Carolina events. It was equally awesome to have such good crowds for our "Flight 5481 Unraveled" seminar in New Bern and Franklin, NC. Look forward to our course based on this seminar as we put the final touches on the "beta" project.

In addition to the rampant growth in general one of the most obvious changes since my hiatus were the consistent sounds of rotor blades of the numerous helicopters providing rides to fellow tourist. After the fact I observed the tour company dominated dozens of billboards, tourism brochures and restaurant menus in the Greater Myrtle Beach region.

* Great News! You can get a seminar credit for the seminar requirement for Operation Fly NC by taking our online audio course,
“Flying Into Non-Towered Airports.” We are offering “Pay What You Want” pricing via PayPal for a short time. While this has been available previously in an audio presentation format, the course has been upgraded to allow pilots to access the audio without any external log-in pages and passwords. After listening to the course, there is a link to the quiz with seven questions about the material. It is graded to 100% for maximum learning. At the end of the course attendees will get a unique code to place in the “seminar” portion of the Operation Fly NC booklet.
