Welcome to the May Issue of The BAC Bulletin & DA News!
In this issue, we remind you of the FAA’s Re-registration requirement and give you information on how you can complete the process as easily as possible. Now that we’re into the Spring flying season, we also provide you a check list review of airfield safety and FAA rules.

Just a reminder that we’re looking forward to seeing you this season at our Fly-ins and social activities that we have planned and provide you with a schedule of events at BAC/DA. We hope to see you at our first event of the year on May 14th when we host the Spring Fling.

Happy flying!
