This is a list of past events (starting 2019) to offer the viewer a spectrum of programs offered here:
~ 6/4 The CAP Sugar Valley Composite Squadron’s Open House took place in the Blue Hangar. Hot-dog cookout, amazing displays, flight simulators, videos, search & rescue equipment show-and-tell, as well as airplanes were for all to enjoy! This was an opportunity to learn a lot about Civil Air Patrol: cadet programs, aerospace education and emergency services.
~ 4/12-4/14 SVA hosted a large Boy Scout Camporee. We had over 100 scouts plus their leaders. On Saturday they participated in many aviation ‘stations’ in order to get their aviation merit badge, including young eagle flights. A number of EAA-chapter 1083 volunteers, some representatives from CAP, as well as SVA volunteers offered their generous service, creating a memorable experience for all involved.
~ 2/23 Safety Meeting. The theme was "HOW TO MAKE FLYING SAFER IN 2019" and covered a variety of topics for young pilots, seasoned (old) pilots, students and pros. It was open to all pilots in the area and offered a chance to meet other pilots and understand different types of flying. It was an informative and interesting session, held in the large classroom of the Blue Hangar.
Here is another group of happy students who completed private pilot ground school on 1/25/19. Congratulations to all the participants and a special thanks to the instructors Sandra Smith and Lee Kosub, who generously share their knowledge, skills and time. SVA Aviation Ground School is a free training offered twice a year by our amazing volunteers. The next session begins on May 24, 2019.
