  1. I'm happy to report that we have met the minimum number of enrolled students and the Service and Maintenance classes are a GO!. There are still seats available, so if you find yourself with the extra time and money to attend we'd be thrilled to see you!
  2. For anyone who signed up for the course(s) online, PLEASE call 540-453-2215 to confirm enrollment.
  3. I forgot to mention that you can call 540-453-2215 and sign up for the classes, vice going through the college enrollment system.
  4. Looks like I'll have to amend the deadline and move it up to the 2nd of May, vice the 4th. That gives everyone three days to wear their significant other down to see the benefits of taking this course!
  5. We currently have nine people signed up for this class, which is more than enough to go forward with it. Still have seats open if you should wish to attend.
  6. Hey there! I'm happy to announce this year's dates and information for the Light Sport Repairman course offered by our college. For general information, please refer to this link: https://sites.google.com/a/email.vccs.edu/brcc-aviation-maintenance/light-sport Tuition costs are based on 5 credit hours and state of residence: http://www.brcc.edu/classes/tuition/tuition-rates/index.html Registration begins the 19th of March, but it's not too early to apply for admission if you are fairly certain you will attend. https://apply.vccs.edu/oa/launch.action If you desire more information regarding registration process or administrative questions, please contact Melissa McElveen at (540) 453-2224 or 'McElveenM@brcc.edu' If you have any questions regarding the program in general please feel free to contact me at (540) 453-2508 or 'dennisk@brcc.edu' Additionally, we're very excited to have an Avid Flyer "C" model available for this year's course. The aircraft was donated to our program from the estate of the gentleman who built, flew, and then stored it downstairs in the family room for the past 15-17 years. It's in great shape and ready for some TLC! NOTE: I opted to start a new subject instead of continuing in CT_MATT's thread from last year. I thought this might be less confusing.

  7. Hello everyone! We need four more more people to sign up for Maintenance and five more for Service in order to meet the minimum enrollment. Please see the first post for information or you can contact me if you have any questions. Thanks! Keith Dennis 540-453-2508 dennisk@brcc.edu
  8. I have updated the information for our 2018 classes. Please see the first post in this thread.
  9. Both letters of interpretation were discussed at length during the class. The FAA does audit our class. POC is Edsel Ford and the prop question was posed to him while he was here. There is a lot of material covered in the three week class and based on the individual's minimal experience, knowledge and non-existent rudimentary computer skills, it's not surprising he called you in a "concerned and confused" state of mind. What is surprising is that you ASSUME an awful lot for not having attended the course to hear what was actually taught. My name and contact information is clearly posted above, but you never even extended the professional courtesy of contacting us to discuss the issue and receive an explanation that would clarify matters. We are free to disagree and doing so in a polite and cordial manner will make for a more pleasant exchange of ideas and opinions. "BRCC, I guess you're not going to correct you're teachers????????? Absolutely shameful! You're class should be audited by the FAA." Have a nice day.
  10. Sorry to hear you regret recommending our class to “Mr. J”. We’re happy to hear he has someone local and knowledgeable to assist him.
  11. She has already blocked the time period from 5-30 June 2018 for our students and will keep it open until 30 days prior (4 May 2018). This is a good deal for a couple of guys if they intend to take the Rotax and LSARM classes.
  12. Thank you, Tip! You guys were a fun class and very low maintenance. Based on your personal recommendation I also added Suzy's bnb to our lodging list.
  13. Enough people have signed up for the course to officially say it's a go! Still have plenty of seats open.
  14. Registration took off last week and we now have 22 of 28 seats filled. Whew!
  15. We have a gentleman from Texas signed up. Everyone is welcome! My goal is to make this class and our LSA Repairman course annual events. There will definitely be more advertising and outreach in the future. Thanks for the comments.
  16. We have met our minimum requirement of enrolled students and the classes are a go!! It was also brought to my attention that the online registration process for these classes pretty much suck. I would recommend registering by phone at 540-453-2215 as the quickest and easiest.

  17. It was brought to my attention this morning that the class will also entail information pertaining to the 914.
  18. I can see where the distance figures in. Are you sure you don't have a sick aunt in Virginia you have to visit?
  19. I'm surprised there hasn't been more discussion or inquiries regarding this.
  20. We're starting to get more phone calls as the days go by. I'll be out of the office for the rest of the week, but feel free to call 540-453-2306 and speak to Fred if you have any questions regarding course content. We have seats for 25 people!
  21. Hi Folks! I need to add in order to hold this class we need a minimum of six people enrolled in each class (Service and Maintenance) at least thirty days prior to the start dates. If we meet the minimum requirement of enrolled students we can continue to enroll students up to the day class starts. We hope to hear from you!
