Caravan Update on Covid-19

posted Mar 20, 2020, 3:29 PM by Paul Steen

The Mooney Caravan is focused on both the safety of flight as well as the health of our pilots and associates.  As you know, the Covid-19 pandemic is a fluid situation and no predictions can be made at this time.  Although AirVenture is still scheduled to occur, it is possible that it may be re-scheduled or cancelled.  We will try to have the clinics currently scheduled to be organized, but only if they can be accomplished within the current CDC/State Health Dept guidelines.  It is quite possible that the clinics will need to be rescheduled if the Covid-19 pandemic is not abated. 
 
The Board of Directors of the Mooney Caravan is constantly evaluating the situation and will post announcements when we can start to have regional formation clinics organized.  However, we will not sacrifice safety either in formation proficiency or our health.  There will be challenges ahead for our
organization, we as individuals, the aviation community, and our nations.  We will be announcing any changes and new dates for clinics and our mission to AirVenture on this web site as well as the group e-mail. 
 
Stay Healthy
