What is BAY FLIGHT?
“Bay Flight” is the ICAO callsign used by San Carlos Flight Center pilots. The FAA wouldn’t let us use “San Carlos” because it would be confused with San Carlos Tower and San Carlos Ground. Similarly, we couldn’t use “Flight Center” because it would be confused with Air Route Traffic Control Centers like Oakland Center and Seattle Center.
BAY FLIGHT (notice the all caps!) is the name we gave to our Bay Area pilot conference. “BayCon” was already taken by a science fiction and fantasy convention.
What is San Carlos Flight Center?
San Carlos Flight Center (SCFC) is the fastest growing and most energetic flying club in the Bay Area. Based at San Carlos Airport, SCFC boasts a fleet larger than all the other clubs on the field combined. The combination of quality instruction, clean and well-maintained aircraft, and friendly staff have made a lasting impact on general aviation in the SF Bay Area, and SCFC has been setting the standard for flying club events, policies, and strategy for over six years. A rising air mass raises all planes, and SCFC’s welcoming policy of inclusion works to improve the pilot experience for all pilots, regardless of where they fly. Find out more about SCFC membership and our active guest speaker and safety seminar program at www.sancarlosflight.com or by calling the Flight Center at (650) 946-1700.
