SEMINARS

We are proud to offer a series of professional-quality seminars that are free of charge to spectators. Each seminar is about one hour in length. Speakers often provide artifacts or audio-visuals, and questions from the audience are encouraged.

The seminars are held in two of the metal hangars at the airport: They are identified as Venue A and Venue B, and are marked with signs. Please take advantage of these excellent presentations. They will be of interest to the general public as well as to pilots and car enthusiasts.

TO ATTEND OUR INDOOR SEMINARS, COVID GUIDELINES REQUIRE A MASK. PLEASE BRING ONE, OR WE CAN PROVIDE ONE AT NO COST WHILE SUPPLIES LAST. MASKS ARE NOT REQUIRED OUTDOORS.
