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.

Event Details and Registration
Topic: Pilot Proficiency Flying
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.
The February meeting will be held in the chapter room on Monday February 11, 2019.
