Frequently Asked Questions

How can I access the recordings of the seminars?
We are finalizing the seminar recordings and will have them uploaded within 3 weeks of the conference. We will send all attendees an email with instructions to access the seminars once they are released.

How will I receive WINGS credit for the seminars that I attended at BAY FLIGHT 2018?
If you filled out a WINGS credit card at the conference, we will credit your account for the seminars you attended within 2 weeks of the conference! If you didn’t fill out a WINGS credit card but would like WINGS credit for the seminars you attended, send us an email at info@sancarlosflight.com including the names of the seminars you attended and the code word, if applicable. Please make sure we have the email address you use at FAASAFETY.gov.

What is BAY FLIGHT?
“Bay Flight” is the ICAO callsign used by San Carlos Flight Center pilots.  The FAA wouldn’t let us use “San Carlos” because it would be confused with San Carlos Tower and San Carlos Ground.  Similarly, we couldn’t use “Flight Center” because it would be confused with Air Route Traffic Control Centers like Oakland Center and Seattle Center.

BAY FLIGHT (notice the all caps!) is the name we gave to our Bay Area pilot conference.  “BayCon” was already taken by a science fiction and fantasy convention.  We hope you will enjoy BAY FLIGHT – a celebration of general aviation flight in the San Francisco Bay Area.

What is San Carlos Flight Center?
San Carlos Flight Center (SCFC) is the fastest growing and most energetic flying club in the Bay Area.  Based at San Carlos Airport, SCFC boasts a fleet larger than all the other clubs on the field combined.  The combination of quality instruction, clean well-maintained aircraft, and friendly staff have made a lasting impact on general aviation in the SF Bay Area, and SCFC has been setting the standard for flying club events, policies, and strategy for over six years.  A rising air mass raises all planes, and SCFC’s welcoming policy of inclusion works to improve the pilot experience for all pilots, regardless of where they fly.  Find out more about SCFC membership and our active guest speaker and safety seminar program at www.sancarlosflight.com or by calling the Flight Center at (650) 946-1700.

Will you be doing this next year?  Will there be a BAY FLIGHT 2019?
Yes.  The response from Bay Area pilots has been tremendous. We are excited to make this a repeating event. There are so many great speakers, interesting topics, and important safety information that we can’t contain it all in one event.  Your comments and feedback at BAY FLIGHT 2018 will help us create an even better event in 2019.

For more information, call the Flight Center at (650) 946-1700 and ask to speak to someone on the Conference Team, or email us at info@bayflight18.com.
