Description:
Join us for a Pilot – Controller round table discussion at the Alaska Airmen’s Building.
 
This event gives you the opportunity to meet controllers from Merrill, Lake Hood, Anchorage, and Approach Control. You’ll be able to ask your questions directly to the controllers you talk to on a daily basis and see who is on the other side of the mic!
 
After a quick brief and word from the controllers, we’ll have an open discussion where you can ask your questions about our local airports and airspace.
 
Please take a minute to review the Part 93 procedures around the Anchorage area prior to the meeting, all you need to bring is your questions! Food and drinks provided.

Meeting: January 6th @ 6:30pm

Difficult or inappropriate situation at work? Is it sexual harassment? What to ignore, what to verbalize something about and how to do it, and what to deal with assertively.

Because of the sensitivity and legal implications for such a topic, we are setting up a few ground rules for the meeting:

• Zero tolerance for phones or recording policy during the discussion. Not only for privacy of those sharing difficult stories, but also for protection against inappropriate use.
• No names are to be used either for implication.
We want those attending to feel as safe as possible.
If you have any questions, please message us, and we will be happy to answer. We look forward to seeing you there.

Date: January 6th, 2020 

Time: 6:30 pm

Location: Alaska Airmen Association, 4200 Floatplane Dr.

“Geoff Oliver wanted to become a pilot when he interviewed Patty Wagstaff at an Aerobatics Competition in 1991 when he was a TV reporter right out of college. In 2013 he passed his private and bought into a share of a Cessna 172 and passed my Instrument check ride in June of 2019. He bought a Maule M5, and has been trying to get epic flight video along the way. He’s been able to fly his Dad over the Grand Canyon, fly the Hudson River past Manhattan, circle Kauai, down the Columbia River Gorge, and took his best college friend flying for his 50th birthday in Missouri.”
 
Geoff Oliver will show videos he produced and how to prepares cameras for flights, and his initial apprehension flying into new locations/fly-ins.
