    The Art of Parallel landings

    12:00 pmKOAK (Oakland, CA) NOTE NEW DATE

    Join us for this first time event in how to conduct a proper parallel landing. We recommend you watch Kerry's (DVA432) link in the DVA forum or here:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=20z1mpSg2zE&list=PLc6ISfO4ATHYRA4K2BnPk6QABaFA5Ypqo

    Idea: DVA432/Kerry. Planning: DVA75255/Dave. Coordination DVA471/Kaj

    Tentative plans are so far to leave Oakland (KOAK) with a parallel take off from 27L (Mid size AC) and 29 (Large AC). Then a direct course to Sausalito VOR (SAU 116.2) Climb and maintain (for 29 only) 6000 and Climb and maintain (for 27L only) 8000 feet. Then pay close attention to departure for further vectors. It is important this time to pay attention to Tower/Departure ATC and follow instructions. Not like VATSIM we won't scream at you if you make a mistake. So no experience, no problem. All DVA's are welcome.

    More info Saturday at start. This is a difficult one to execute but really fun....BE THERE!!!
