Join us for our next monthly SCAPA meeting on Tuesday, January 14th 2014 at the Wings of History Museum. We gather at 5:30 pm, serve dinner at 6 ($15 members, $20 non-members, Guests Welcome!), hold a brief business meeting at 6:45, and our speaker presentation kicks off at 7pm.

January's topic is: Flying Aerobatics

Have you ever wondered what it feels like to fly upside down? Does executing a Lomcevak really give you a headache? Even if you prefer your flying to remain straight and level, find out how learning aerobatics can enhance the safety of your everyday flights by giving you a deeper understanding of your airplane's full flight envelope, leaving you much better prepared to safely recover from emergency upsets. Aerobatics are the ultimate Unusual Attitude!

19 DEC 2013 UPDATE: FAA WINGS credit has been approved for this event! Pre-register now for credit on the FAASTeam events web site.
