IFR-VFR Safety Seminar At Volk Field

CAMP DOUGLAS, WIS. – The next WisDOT IFR-VFR Safety Seminar is scheduled for May 17th at Volk Field ANGB in Camp Douglas, Wis., and will be held in conjunction with the base open house. If you have not attended this seminar, you’ll find it an interesting mix of safety presentations.

There are two tracks where a variety of speakers will be presenting safety information on VFR flying in one room and in another room, there will be sessions on IFR flying. FAA Wings credit will be available.

Pilots will be able to fly in to Volk Field (VOK) with prior permission, but will be required to pre-register to obtain an arrival slot at http://www.mysignup.com/volkfield.

There will be a pancake breakfast in hangar 504 until 10 a.m. The seminars begin at 10 a.m. and will continue into the afternoon. There will be no static displays or aerial demonstrations as in past years.
