A new tour has been published: Adriatic turnaround

Thanks to the SkyClub Flight Operations, we’re proud to present the Adriatic turnaround tour.

The tour is divided into 10 legs and runs counter-clockwise around the entire coast of the Adriatic Sea, allowing to appreciate the remarkable differences between the western and eastern side. We will start from Venice Lido and follow the Italian shore south-eastwards down to to the Salento peninsula, then cross the sea to Albania and go on north-westwards along the jagged ex-Yugoslavian coastline, rich of islands with their characteristic stretched shape, touching Montenegro, Bosnia, Croatia and Slovenia. Finally, from Istria, we will come back to Italy, heading to Venice Tessera where the tour ends.

VA news

Tons of news today, let’s start:

  • The flight school syllabus has been reviewed: we’re trying to create a smooth learning path that properly covers the needs required to achieve each module: check the site
  • Giuseppe Mazzei enters the school staff and takes the ownership of a new optional module: ATC basics
  • What? ATC basics?!?!? That’s great! Yes, it is and the only prerequisite is to be an active member of SkyClub, including fly time requirements
  • As Giuseppe comes in, Davide and Gabriele leave the role of VP: by now, life demands time; doors will be always open
  • Accordingly, Giampaolo gets the role of VP School and Celestino VP Fly Ops
  • Aurelio will support Celestino as fly ops staff
  • Francesco will have a more active role as staff school, including the recurrent scheduling of ATC sessions
  • The IR optional module is suffering the lack of the trainer, then, at a very low priority, will be managed by the only one currently entitled: Leonardo
