ATC/FAA/Drone Updates October 30, 2015
On October 30, 2015 at the Prairie Landings Golf Club in DuPage there will be an ATC/Drone presentation. ATC will have a two part presentation. One will be upcoming changes in airspace as well as future projects and then the ATC perspective on Drones and regulations. There will also be a presentation from Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI) on where the drone community is currently. We will also have an Aviation Lawyer presenting on the legal aspects of drones.
Drones have been in the news a lot lately. Drone uses for good, and also for interfering with the aviation community. With so many companies starting to use drones or thinking about using them, they are asking their flight departmens for advice. This will be a great opportunity to learn and ask questions about air traffic, drones and legal aspects of them.
Registration coming soon.
Lewis University Mentoring Event September 25, 2015
Lewis University Aviation will be sponsoring our annual CABAA Mentoring program on Friday, September 25th, and we would like you to participate. This is an opportunity for professionals in aviation to share their experiences in the aviation field with students who are presently majoring in aviation at Lewis University.
This event is one of the highlights for Lewis Aviation, and we would like to personally invite you to participate at this event from 11:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. at the Harold E. White Aviation Center. Many of you have graciously participated at this event in the past, and the format will be the same. We’ll ask CABAA members to spread out among the tables with Lewis Aviation students to talk about your career in aviation, and to answer their questions as well as advise them on a good direction they can take in their own career paths. We will periodically ask CABAA members to move to another table so you can maximize your message to our aviation students.
We are asking you to register with Sandy Frentz at CABAA, so we know how many guests to expect. The event will include a free luncheon for everyone as well as a tremendous opportunity to network with students in the Lewis Aviation Program.
You may have heard that the Aviation Maintenance Hangar went through a 2.1 million dollar renovation this summer, and we would like to take this opportunity to showcase the upgrade in facilities with our friends from CABAA.
