Thursday 3rd April 2020, the Governor of the region announced a 30-day stay at home order. 16 critical business are designated as essential. To quote the decree:
“…the aviation mode includes commercial and recreational aircraft (manned and unmanned) and a wide-variety of support services, such as aircraft repair stations, fuelling facilities, navigation aids, and flight schools.”
2FLY will continue to operate . The Stay at Home mandate allows supermarkets, clinics, banks, pharmacies and other daily necessities to remain open. All students are required to remain in their homes, unless scheduled for a training event.
There are a range of rules in place to keep students and instructors safe and they will be informed accordingly.
