FAA Safety Program at 1900 at Lindbergh High School, 4900 S Lindbergh (Hwy 61), between I-270 & I-55. Subject: TAKEOFF. One of the most exciting, challenging, and critical times of flight. That instant when our airplane becomes airborne. But it's also that instant when we lose all the stability of being on the ground. So as pilot in command, we must be prepared. As part of our preparation we need to be thoroughly familiar with both the capability and the limitations of the airplane we are flying. And, we need to thoroughly aware of the performance considerations effecting takeoff. Won't you join us?

Fly-Out to Logan County Airport (AAA) to attend the German Oktoberfest in Lincoln IL. The "Heritage in Flight Museum" is located at the airport so you will also get a chance to visit their museum. An F-4, A-7, T-33, UH-1H, etc. are on static display. The museum itself is housed in a World War II German POW barracks. Admission is free; donations are requested. The rotating beacon at the airport was part of the lighted airway system route from St Louis to Chicago. This was the route that Charles Lindbergh flew as an airmail pilot.
