Free Live Webinar! March 13, 2014

FAA Safety Team | Safer Skies Through Education
 Notice Number: NOTC5195
The live safety seminar comes to you! No need to travel, sit on a hard chair, endure uncomfortable temperatures, or be exposed to colds or flu! Join us for this informative program and earn WINGS credit!

In-flight loss of control (LOC) has emerged as the number one causal factor for fatal general aviation accidents. On the premise that prevention is better than cure, this live webinar will focus on practical ways to help prevent in-flight loss of control rather than recovery techniques. In addition to the technical reasons for aircraft loss of control, this webinar will examine the human factors that are frequently cited as underlying causes in LOC accidents. Several recent accidents will be discussed and analyzed to learn from the mistakes of others.

The webinar will last approximately one hour and is worth one Basic Knowledge 3 credit toward the FAA "WINGS" Pilot Proficiency Program.

The webinar is interactive and can be viewed on either a PC or a Mac. A high speed Internet connection is required. Speakers are required. A microphone is required to participate in discussions.

"Why Did They Do That? Avoiding the Loss of Control Accident" will be presented at three different times on March 13, 2014. You can choose the time that is most convenient for you. The times are:

Session #1: Thurs. March 13, 2014 3:00 PM EDT, 2:00 PM CDT, 1:00 PM MST, 12:00 NOON PDT (1900 UTC)

And the winner is......

Thanks to all of you who participated in our SOUP-OFF last night. Congratulations to this years winners of Leanne Scribner, Susan Fender, and Ann Cargile. In addition to good soup and great fellowship we raised $253 that will be used at Gilbert schools to provide "Book bag meals" to feed hungry children on weekends. This was a change that all agreed to last night. Again "Thank you!"
