Ground schools are recorded for documentation and instructor training purposes. We have also created online ground schools for both Private and Commercial certificate-seeking pilots.  You may purchases access to these ground schools at our online store. The participants in our in-person ground schools are also granted access for 60 days to the corresponding class for additional learning and review.

The monthly general meetings including the program and safety corner are available via Zoom or in person. Recordings are made available to members in good standing. Some of the programs are also available to the general public. These can be viewed on our YouTube channel. (bit.ly/AAAAvideo)

Other videos are produced on an as-needed basis and made available to the public and/or members via the website or our YouTube Channel.

 

Flying in the Albuquerque Area

This video is a recording of the June 2021 AAAA General Meeting. At that meeting, Peg Billson presented on “changes” to flying in the Albuquerque area. It specifically addresses where the Class C and D airspace is, how to recognize it from the air, and who to communicate with if you’re going to be in that airspace. This is a must-see video for those who fly in the Albuquerque area.
