This Saturday May 4th @ 10AM! Stop by for some coffee, donuts and Mountain Flying! This seminar is presented by the DuPage FAASTeam and is hosted by EAA Chapter 104. Register online.
Flying in mountainous areas is challenging, not only because operational altitudes and winds are higher, but also because weather reporting and off airport landing opportunities are fewer than in other flight environments. This seminar, prepared by the Colorado Pilots’ Association, acquaints pilots with the challenges of mountain flying and offers suggestions for training and additional information. It is informational only and in no way prepares inexperienced pilots for flying in mountainous environments.
Is there interest in setting up a group transponder check for a day in May at KVPZ??? If enough interest is expressed, we will contact the avionics shop to work out details. Use our contact form or contact Ed Hanson directly.
Loss of control is the most lethal general aviation accident precursor. Proficiency training and flying can reduce the chances that control will be lost.
Regular training and practice help keep skill levels high. Both the National Transportation and Safety Board (NTSB) and the General Aviation Joint Steering Committee (GAJAC) recommend Proficiency Training and flying as a means to reduce the number of general aviation loss of control accidents.
