Welcome to the Lehigh Valley Flying Club

Safety (aka Aircraft Utilization)

"Aircraft Utilization" is the term frequently used by our long time Insurance Broker Larry Rachlin.

During our annual renewal discussions Larry always said "Safety" has been used as word used by members to throw at other members as a way to motivate each other to be better pilots.  However, it usually creates a negative feelings and tendency to hide valuable learning experience out of fear of being judged by others.  These experiences should be shared and pilots of our club should be encouraged by others to "utilize" our aircraft.

We have this page to to benefit not only our Club members but all of the flying community. 

Safety News Bulletins:

  • Some of you may wish to download this "cheat sheet" provided by Avemco, to create, access and administrate your Wings account. It is a good resource.  This is also downloadable from the FAASafety.gov web site, under Team Rewards-Avemco.  Please save it to your computer. It may come in handy.  Safe Skies! Jim Sankey.
