DART Exercise Saturday, Oct. 1, 2016 PDF Print E-mail
Written by Mark van Wyk   
Thursday, 15 September 2016
Dear SCAPA Members:

This year’s Disaster Airlift Response Team (DART) exercise is coming up on October 1. Please mark it on your calendars and let Paul Marshall know if you can participate. Paul will be doing the event planning beforehand and Rod Pharis will be the Operations Director on the day of the event. We’ll keep the format similar to last year’s exercise – We assume a large earthquake has isolated Gilroy, San Martin, and Morgan Hill from the rest of the state – surface transportation has been cut at overpasses south of Gilroy and north of Morgan Hill, and we need the airport to help connect us to the outside world.

We will conduct a number of operations that model things we can do to help the community such as evacuating families to relatives elsewhere in Northern California, flying emergency workers into the area or to their jobs in neighboring communities, and flying in emergency food rations from outside locations.

Flying the Grand Canyon SFRA with Dave Kramer

The Grand Canyon is a world renowned tourist destination. Wouldn't it be fun to see the majestic beauty of the Grand Canyon from above? Flying in the area surrounding the Grand Canyon offers pilots a unique opportunity to improve their skills, due to the Special Flight Rules Area designated around the park. The rules help separate visitors on the ground from aircraft noise, and help protect GA pilots from commercial air tours. Dave Kramer will review the SFRA and provide suggestions for making your flight over the Grand Canyon safe and enjoyable.
