FAAST Seminar this coming Saturday October 26th @ 10am

This seminar will be held at the EAA 104 Chapter Room.

The title of the seminar is Controlled Flight Into Terrain and Over-Reliance on Automation. From the FAASafety.gov website:

An over-reliance on automation may be a precursor to a flying mishap, regardless if the flight is in daylight hours or during night flight conditions. General aviation pilots are well-advised to understand the limitations of automation and to maintain proficiency in flight operations with and without automation.
