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.

Dave Kramer will review the SFRA and provide suggestions for making your flight over the Grand Canyon safe and enjoyable.

Ever wonder where they are, what they do and how they do it? Our speaker will share information from the inside about NORCAL operations and how to make the most of services available to pilots with emphasis on safe VFR practices.
