Flying The San Francisco Bay

Liz Sommers Join us in hearing from Liz Sommers on how to get those breathtaking views of San Francisco. The Pacific Ocean with its dramatic coast line, beautiful hills, and many famous landmarks give us a unique opportunity as pilots to see the birds eye view. But even with years of experience, our complex airspace can frustrate and confuse. With Liz's help, you can negotiate and master the language ATC is looking for to ensure a safe and smooth flight. Her method will equip you to fly from any destination around our landmarks by following expected patterns and altitudes. Maps are not enough to give you the tried and true method of enjoying our lovely area. And several instructors will insist that there is only one way to fly a bay tour. Liz covers the rules, so you are free to enjoy the ride!

These women, in their humble surroundings, showed the world that our country is stronger when everyone pitches in. Their message "Yes We Can" is an iconic symbol of the inclusion of women in the war effort, and subsequently a symbol of strength and confidence for women all over the globe.
