San Carlos Flight Center invites you to join our Special Ops Team - a group of volunteers and members working to support amazing projects at the Flight Center and general aviation. It's a fun way to take your passion for aviation to the next level, so join in on the fun! Here are some Special Ops Team Projects currently underway:
Greeter/Welcomer: It can be a daunting challenge to walk into a flight school for the first time, with a mind full of questions and no clear idea where to get answers. Special Ops Team members act as a volunteer greeter a couple of hours per month. They are at the Flight Center office, on hand to help welcome in new people to the SCFC community. Greeters also assist Flight Center staff in taking photos of activities and escorting flight passengers to the flight line. It's a great way to share your love of aviation with a potential new member.
Event Planning: SCFC holds many fun and educational events, both at the SCFC office and hangar, and on FlyOutGroup trips to exciting distant destinations. There is a lot of behind-the-scenes work that goes into putting on an amazing pilot event, and Special Ops Team members are put to great use. If you like event planning, and you are good with details, then Special Ops needs you.
Fundraising: San Carlos Flight Centers sponsors the Upwind Summer Scholarship Program which provides a summer of flight training to one lucky local high school senior each year. Through the year, we hold a variety of fundraising events to raise money for the program. You can help make a difference in the life of a young pilot!
The Special Ops Team meets every other Monday at the SCFC office, and at a variety of other times as needed.
Be a part of the San Carlos Flight Center energy and join us at the next Special Ops Team meeting! Call or come by the SCFC Office to get the date for our next meeting. Email Dan (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you want to find out more about volunteering.
