After the summer hiatus and September’s CFI VMC/IMC Forum (N.B. Sorry for the incorrect information on the website), our chapter’s VMC/IMC Forums are be returning in October!

For those who are not aware, our WPA Paine Chapter and Simulation Flight will be continuing to sponsor and hold monthly safety and education forum’s on both IFR and VFR subjects. These forums are at no cost to pilots and most forums qualify for FAA Wings credits. Bob Collins, owner, is a Paine Chapter member.

These are not a dull lectures. A practical subject/scenario will be presented each time by experienced CFI’s for discussion. Forum participants are encouraged to share their questions, views, and experiences. This is an opportunity to learn from each other in a small group, with guidance from some very experienced pilots.

The Forums are normally scheduled for the 4th Wednesday of the month at 7PM -8PM local time. The specific subject for the October 24th Forum has not been identified in time for publication in the newsletter; however, the topic is usually strongly influenced by those who participate. Reservation by email is preferred, as space is limited. Email your reservation to

Simulation Flight is in the office park, NW across street from the Future of Flight and Holiday Inn at the NW corner of Paine Field.
