The Addison Arbor Foundation (AAF) completed its 20th public art installation earlier this year. Originally installed at a courtyard in the Addison Circle District, AAF restored and relocated local Dallas artist David B. Hickman‘s kinetic artwork. The sculpture was ‘re’installed by John Galletta of 2G Art Services with the assistance of the Town of Addison Parks Department. The 9′ by 6′ by 6’ kinetic wind-activated sculpture cast in bronze, glass and steel materials with two pieces representing Aikido martial arts.

The Addison Arbor Foundation (AAF) officially dedicated the Akido to the Town of Addison on Tuesday, December 12. 

Addison is home to more public art per capita than any other city in the U.S. For more information on Addison Arbor Foundation (AAF) and to help support their mission, please visit addisonarbor.org

Galaxy FBO recently co-hosted an ‘Evening in Aviation’ at the Addison Airport with PNC Aviation Finance. The well attended event featured all major aircraft manufacturers, with Gulfstream Aerospace featuring its new flagship G700 ultra-long-range large cabin aircraft on display for tours.

PNC Aviation Finance has more than 500 aircraft in its portfolio, and had $5.6B worth of transactions in the past five years. “Our whole philosophy is to build meaningful, longstanding relationships with our clients and partners. For our partners, whether those are the leading broker dealers, the OEMs, or other players, we have the opportunity to help them deliver for their clients. And those relationships are incredibly important to us. So we spend a lot of time with those partners, understanding their needs and helping them understand our model and how we evaluate risk and return.” said Alex Overstrom, who is head of aviation finance for PNC in a recent interview for the Business Jet Traveler magazine.

You are cleared to Take Off! Choosing the right flight school is a crucial step in your journey to becoming a pilot.

Here are some steps to help you pick the right flight school:

  1. Decide what type of pilot you want to become (private, commercial, airline transport, etc.) and whether you want to pursue fixed-wing aircraft or helicopters. Different flight schools may specialize in different areas.
  2. Research flight schools in your area or in locations you’re willing to travel to. Use online resources, directories, and recommendations from other pilots to create a list of potential schools.
  3. Ensure that the flight school is accredited by the appropriate aviation authority in your country, such as the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) in the United States. Accreditation is an important indicator of quality and safety standards.
  4. Visit the school! This will give you a chance to see the facilities, meet the instructors, and get a feel for the school’s culture and environment.
  5. Talk to current and former students: Speak with current and former students to gather insights into their experiences with the school. Ask about the quality of instruction, aircraft maintenance, and overall satisfaction.
  6. Ensure that the flight school has a well-maintained and up-to-date fleet of aircraft. The variety and condition of aircraft available can affect your training experience.
  7. Check Instructor qualifications: Instructors play a vital role in your training. Experienced and knowledgeable instructors can greatly impact your learning experience.
  8. Research the school’s safety record and accident history. A good safety record is a strong indicator of a well-managed flight school.
  9. Compare the cost of training at different schools. Consider not only the hourly rates for aircraft and instruction but also additional costs such as ground school, materials, and examination fees.
  10. Consider the school’s location in terms of accessibility, weather conditions, and the availability of other resources like accommodation and transportation. Texas airports are ideal for year-around flight training.

By following these steps and conducting thorough research, you can make an informed decision when selecting the right flight school for your aviation journey.
