The Twin Cessna Flyers will meet in their annual convention at the Charleston Marriott hotel in Charleston, South Carolina from April 27 through April 30, 2016. Following a highly-successful convention in Colorado Springs in 2015, TTCF is anticipating a record turnout of Twin Cessna owners, hosted by Atlantic Aviation at Charleston Executive Airport (KJZI).
Featured speakers include NTSB Board Member Robert L. Sumwalt, who addresses the Thursday morning opening session, and noted airborne weather radar expert Erik Eliel. On Thursday evening, the Twin Cessna Flyers will dine aboard the historic U.S.S. Yorktown aircraft carrier, now a floating museum at the Charleston waterfront.
Friday morning’s speaker will be Dr. David Strahle, discussing preflight weather planning, and Saturday will feature Dr. Robert Zubrin, an advocate of Mars exploration, whose topic will be “Mars Direct: Red Planet Visit Within A Decade.” Educational seminars and a vendor exhibition hall will be available throughout the convention.
A pre-convention tour of the Charleston area will be featured on Wednesday, April 27 and a Companions tour of Boone Hall Plantation will be available on Saturday, April 30. Simcom Aviation Training will host the ground school companion Pinch Hitter Course on Thursday, April 28.
