I was at a CFI clinic at UAA last night and they reminded folks that next Wednesday (Nov. 16) there is a Mid-Air Collision Avoidance meeting being held at UAA-Merrill Field beginning at 6:00 p.m. The online registration is already full at 75 people, but we heard last night that there will be seating made available for an additional 50 people. Below is the info off the FAAST website:
