VASI All Member Meeting

Time:  Wednesday October 17th  (Please note that we had the wrong day of the week listed on the VASI AIM that went out earlier - the correct day is Wednesday)

Speaker:  Pilot/Deputy Steve Shull

Topic:  "Sarasota County Sheriff Aviation Unit"

The Aviation Unit utilizes a 2005 Bell 407 single engine helicopter with the call sign “Air-1.” This aircraft and the three pilots that fly it provide the Sheriff’s Office and all other city and county agencies with assistance in a variety of missions. These might include missing persons, searches, surveillance and patrol. This aircraft is also capable of assisting with firefighting as requested. In addition to the pilots, the unit is comprised of one full time Aviation mechanic and eight part-time tactical flight officers (TFO’s) who are integral to the operation of various pieces of equipment to include the Wescam MX-10 Multi Sensor System (infrared camera) in both day and night environments.


We will be raffling off aviation memorabilia at our meeting for a donation of $1 per ticket.   

This month's gift is an Aviation silk scarf - embroidered with "Army Air Force"  very appropriate considering the history of KVNC.  All attendees will be eligible to participate - no limit on number of tickets purchased.

Time:   Wednesday  7 PM - 8 PM

Where:  Venice Council Chamber

Hope to see you there.
