Use of Weather Information and Preflight After Maintenance
From Dennis Miller with the Chicago Area FAASTeam…
In the first seminar, Use of Weather Information, we will take a look at available weather information sources for general aviation pilots and offer guidance on making well-informed weather decisions.
In the second seminar, Preflight After Maintenance, we will discuss the importance of thorough preflight inspections of aircraft that have just been returned to service. The discussion will include the consequences of inadequate preflight inspections, some common problems that have led to accidents, and what to look for following maintenance.
Every 2nd Saturday of the month (this Saturday) that we at Sojourner field have a “hangin our at the hanger” with donuts/coffee at breakfast & grilled hamburgers for lunch. Also movie night in the evening (Darkest Hour this month). More details can be viewed on the events page of www.sojournerfield.com.

April 20th 10am-Noon Central: We will once again conduct aircraft/aviation first responder rescue training at the airport on April 20th from 10am-Noon. This free course is geared toward showing first responders the hazards associated with responding to an aircraft or aviation accident or incident. The training will be conducted by an aircraft rescue and firefighting trained firefighter from Purdue Fire (confirmed). We are also working on getting an NTSB field investigator here (confirmation pending).
This training is aimed at first responders, but it is open to anyone interested in gaining the information.
