october 12: marin Sheriff’s air Patrol
We hope you'll join us this Saturday, October 12 (9:00 a.m. in the Scanlon Aviation hangar) for our monthly GFCA breakfast. This month we have an especially timely presentation from our own Dave Mitchell regarding the Marin County Sheriff's Air Patrol's fixed-wing activities.
You probably know several members of the Marin County Sheriff's Air Patrol already, and you might also remember that Sgt. Brenton Schneider gave a talk and demonstration of their drone program at our July breakfast. Here's what Dave has to say about his presentation this month:
"The Marin County Sheriff’s Air Patrol is a volunteer division of the Field Services Bureau - as is SAR (Search & Rescue). They provide air support for the sheriff and the presentation will go over the details of that support and some of the specific piloting techniques that are used - particularly in working in controlled airspace (B, C or D). They will also go over the nature of their support for some the major incidents that have occurred in the County over the past few years."
See their website https://www.mcsair.org for more information."
