Friday night dinner features our popular live auction and gives everyone a chance to socialize.

Saturday night dinner is on your own. The Broadmoor has multiple restaurants, or you can explore the spectacular local cuisine in Colorado Springs.

Companions and Companions Training

If you plan on bringing a non-flying companion, on Thursday we will be offering a leisurely one-hour walking tour of Cheyenne Canyon. And sign up for the Friday afternoon 1-1/2 hour walking tour of the historical Broadmoor complex. EJOPA will be offering a get-acquainted luncheon on Thursday.

We will also be offering the Eclipse Companion Training ground school and in-aircraft training in your plane. Having two people onboard who can fly, operate, and land the plane is a big bonus for safety. Norton Aviation will again be offering a companion training classroom session customized to the Eclipse. The focus will be the cockpit in general and the autopilot specifically.

In addition to the ground school, they will be offering a 1.5 hour flying session practicing pattern flying and emergency landings in your plane. These activities are designed to enable companions to be more comfortable in the flying environment. DonÂ’t hesitate, sign up while registering!
