Here we are–year two and still dealing with the coronavirus in our personal and aviation worlds. As things start to open up a bit, here at MAA we are hard at work keeping the pilot community educated, informed and entertained during these continued uncertain times. The good news is that fly-ins and safety seminars are starting to appear on the horizon. MAA has created monthly Coffee Fly-In’s at different airport hangars around the state. These “pop-up” events from 9-11AM are a way to reconnect with our aviation community.
