New Website and New Signs!

The new website is going live on Monday.  It is more friendly on your smartphone or iPad and as always easy to read on your PC or Mac.  

It has sections for student pilots, local residents as well as our pilot members.  A new Sponsors page will allow you to review the local businesses and quickly link over to their sites for more information.

You can find past Newsletters and the Calendar of events easily.  You can even print the events calendar - try it!  We will be including other events that are relevant on this calendar as well.

In addition to the VASI AIM and VASI NOTAMs, that will continue to come via email, there is a News section that will have items from various sources as well as opinion pieces written by our members about the going ons in Venice and vicinity or aviation in general.  We are encouraging all members to send us material that they think would be of interest to Pilots, Residents or Student Pilots to 

The Marketplace will take you to our online store where you can renew your membership or get VASI merchandise to show your support.

Joining VASI will be a quick click away without a need to fill out any paper forms - although the paper form is still available for those who prefer to use US Mail to send in their application.  Please encourage your friends and neighbors who are interested in learning more about the Airport or aviation in general to join the newsletter mailing list.

As we grow and evolve the website will change as well to become more useful to you and the Venice community at large.  In the meantime, let us know what you think!

The switch over will be automatic and you do not have to change your bookmarks.  On Monday you can go to like before to see the new website.


New Signs

If you have been wondering where the new snazzy VASI meeting announcement signs have come from - we all have our new member Greg Frank of Venice to thank.  Greg is former Navy and Glider pilot who has graciously offered his creative arts skills to come up with new signs and graphics for us.
As you see, our new signs have a cool aviation background.  We want to make that even cooler by asking members to send in pictures of their aircraft to use.  Your picture needs to easily fit on 8.5 X 11 paper and ideally have the sky, horizon or other plain background (no busy vegetation or trees please).  Send your pictures to
