Monthly Newsletter - January 2020

It's a new year and a new decade for Savannah Aviation. As we continues to grow from our humble beginnings into the premiere flight training and maintenance facility in the Southeast, we'd be remiss if we did not thank you, the customer, for making our company such a success!

2019 was an amazing year full of growth and 2020 promises to be even better as we continue to evolve and look for new and innovative ways to bring aviation services to the Savannah and surrounding coastal Georgia area. From expanding our flight training opportunities to Saint Simons Island, Brunswick, and Statesboro; to expanding our flight training fleet and pool of instructors; to eventually becoming a Part 141 organization to support our military active duty, National Guard, and veterans, Savannah Aviation looks forward to a new year full of successes for all our customers and clients!
Congratulations to all our successful December 2019

Advice from Adam Harmon, CFI
Flight Instructor, Savannah Aviation
"A big thing for me is stall prevention right after takeoff. Training to expect an engine out after every takeoff, obtain a "Defined Minimum Maneuvering Speed", and "FLY" the airplane to the best available landing spot are critical elements that must be practiced. Gold Seal Flight Instructor Dan Gryder is a huge advocate for this new take on stall avoidance training, check out this link below for more information." 
Have you heard the story about the two gravestones on the runway?
Few of the millions of passengers who fly in and out of Savannah Airport each year notice two peculiar rectangles lying in the middle of the runway. What appear at first glance to be patches from repair work in the tarmac are actually the headstones of Richard and Catherine Dotson—the only known graves to be embedded in an airport runway in the world. Check out the link below to find out more about this unique story.
Looking to build flight time while enjoying a home cooked breakfast?
Just over the northern state line, our friends in South Carolina have been enjoying what is arguably the most successful fly in program in the country. Every other Sunday since 1938, pilots and aviation enthusiasts have met for breakfast at an airport somewhere in South Carolina and a few surrounding states. It's a home-cooked southern breakfast, great fellowship, and flying! Check out the link below for a schedule of when and where the next Breakfast Club meeting will take place.
Savannah Aviation to debut a way to save money on flight training
The Savannah Aviation "Gemini Program", named in honor of the NASA astronauts who blazed a path for others to walk on the moon, allows one student to sit in the front seat with the instructor while another student sits in the back to observe and take notes for when it's their turn to fly. Using this unique teaching method, two students can join forces to split the cost of flight training and thereby save money in the long run. Contact our Chief Flight Instructor, Zack Hartley, at (912) 964-1022 for more information on this revolutionary new Flight Training opportunity!
