Aero Club to hear about drones


          Types of drones, where they typically fly and how to avoid them will be the topic of a presentation to the Sun Lakes Aero Club (SLAC) gathering March 21 at the Sun Lakes Country Club Mirror Room.  The session begins with coffee and camaraderie at 6:30 p.m., followed by the presentation at 7 p.m.  The public is invited to attend.

          Guest speaker will be Doug Andriuk, who recently retired from a 20-year career in the US Air Force where he was a pilot flying cargo and high ranking government officials. He holds an ATP rating with a B737 type rating and has more than 6,000 flight hours.        

          He spent the last 10 years of his USAF career managing several important Aspects of VIPSAM (Very Important Person/Special Air Mission) operations and was fortunate to have served as a pilot on Air Force Two. He is president of the Phoenix Area Drone User’s Group, which has more than 400 members. 

SLAC sponsors fly-in breakfasts and field trips each month from November through April.  The Club’s next fly-in is March 24 to Payson. Addition information is available from Cannon Hill at  590-539-7857or Gary Vacin at 298-7017.
