We will have a 10-minute presentation from one of our flight instructor members, followed by a panel discussion with 4 club members who recently got their licenses. You’ll have the opportunity to learn the Federal requirements for a pilot’s license, learn about training opportunities in Boston and around the country, and ask any questions you might have. **Plus, we will be raffling off a FREE introductory flight lesson — a $200 value!**
