    This week we have been tasked to help in the California wildfire efforts and bringing
    supplies to Redding. Fill up your planes full of food, water, fire retardant, and other supplies
    to support the firefighting efforts.

    As we learned last week, aviation has a huge role in fighting forest fires. This week we will
    get more of a hands on experience to support the people in need of the devastating fires.

    More information will continue to be published as this real ongoing fire continues and may
    change the characteristics of our next flight. Stay tuned!

    Flights are usually bi-weekly.
    This is a VFR flight. We will be flying mainly by hand following the route as a guide.
    The main goal of these flights is to enjoy the scenery.
    This is a continuous flight series and we will start where we left off last week.
