It is time to start planning for the 2019 Flight Instructor Re-validation Clinic (FIRC) that will be held January 21 and 22 and the end of the membership year is quickly approaching. The 2019 FIRC will be held at a the same location as last year at the Chesterfield Airport (SUS), Helicopters Inc facility at 18366 Wings of Hope Drive, Chesterfield, Missouri 63006. Please see the enclosed flyer for details.
The FIRC early registration fee is $200, and includes the 2017 association membership dues. The fee at the door will be $225. We offer CFIs the opportunity to attend the January 2017 FIRC free. A CFI can attend and re-validate at the FIRC free if they have not attended the GSLFIA FIRC in 2015 or 2016. An individual is eligible for only one free FIRC.
If you are planning to attend the FIRC, make any changes or corrections to the re-validation or renewal form on the back, check the appropriate FIRC registration line, enclose a $200 check, and mail it in the enclosed envelope. If you are not planning to attend the FIRC, you may renew your membership for 2017, by making any changes or corrections to the re-validation or renewal form on the back, checking the membership renewal line, enclosing a $20 check, and mailing it in the enclosed envelope.
Your continued membership and participation in the GSLFIA FIRC helps achieve our goals to further the flight instructor’s development and promote aviation safety. These goals are accomplished by presenting the Flight Instructors Revalidation Clinic (FIRC) each January, Round Table Discussions and Safety Seminars for all pilots. We provide scholarship funds for developing CFIs and publish an annual Pocket Directory of members.
You are important to the association. Your continued support helps maintain a strong and active force in the St. Louis aviation community. Participation in the GSLFIA and FIRC is an investment in your local aviation community!
