WINGs Event Schedule

8:00-10:00 Registration and Free breakfast provided by Hickory Regional Airport Commission - North Hangar - #5

8:00-9:00  Certified Flight Instructors WINGs Briefing Classroom One 

9:00-9:45 "Earning Your WINGS"  Instructions on how to accomplish a WINGs Phase. Learn how easy it is for you and your instructor to compose a proficiency program that meets your required skills and knowledge. Discover the fun and advantages by participating in this annual recurrent training initiative. Held during breakfast in Hangar 5. 

10:00-10:45  Two Seminars to Choose From

Seminar I - "Say Again" Most professional pilots will agree that taxiing at busy airports can be risky and confusing, especially at night and in bad weather. Learn about all the new ATC instructions, runway and taxi way markings, and procedures that have been adopted in the last 12 months. See a video re-enactment of how two professional flight crews almost collided on the ground. Get informed and avoid the confusion that often comes with operating at a controlled field. Classroom 1

Seminar 2 - Hot, High, and Heavy  Operating your plane from high altitude airports is bad enough, but when coupled with summer temperatures, short runways, and terrain obstructions, you've got real trouble. Learn about dealing with high density altitude and its effects. Find out why it's so important to fly a "stabilized approach". Discover why heavy airplanes demand heavy decisions before takeoff. Classroom 2

11:00-12:00 Two to Choose From

Seminar 3 - "Dying to Get There"  Making the right decision involves knowing the capabilities of you and your airplane. Learn how to set your limits, evaluate your skills, and use good judgment. You will view a 20 minute video and then participate in an open forum during which you can ask questions about decision making skills and doing the right thing. Classroom 1

 Seminar 4 - Takeoffs are Optional, Landings are Mandatory! Almost 60% of all General Aviation accidents occur during this phase of flight. Watch a presentation composed by the University of North Dakota Aviation Department that reviews fundamental skills and procedures during this flight phase. We all tend to forget some of those valuable tips first learned in training. Here is your chance to see them again and brush up on your knowledge and how to practice these skills with your flight instructor. Classroom 2

12:00-1:00 Free Lunch  Treat yourself to a delicious lunch in North Hangar 5 sponsored by Riverhawk Aviation. Participate in competing for the "most humorous" aviation story and win a prize. 

1:00-1:45 Two to Choose from

Seminar 5 "Say Again" (Repeat of Seminar 1)  Most professional pilots will agree that the risk factor increases on the ground at busy towered airports. Learn about all the new ATC instructions, runway and taxi way markings, and procedures that have been adopted in the last 12 months. See a video re-enactment of how two professional flight crews almost collided on the ground. Get informed and avoid the confusion that often comes with operating at a controlled field. (Classroom 1)

Seminar 6 Light Sport Aviation  Find out why this aviation activity is growing so fast. Learn how to get certified in Light Sport and why ownership of this type is so affordable. Dig into the airmen regulations and aircraft certification requirements. You may find out Light Sport is just for you. (Classroom 2)

2:00-3:00 Two to Choose From

Seminar 7 - "Dying to Get There" (repeat of Seminar 3)  Making the right decision involves knowing the capabilities of you and your airplane. Learn how to set your limits, evaluate your skills, and use good judgment. You will view a 20 minute video and then participate in an open forum during which you can ask questions about decision making skills and doing the right.  Classroom 1    

Seminar 8 - Gremlins Lurking in the Night  Discover how not to get spooked while flying at night. Learn about the risks associated with night flying, setting weather limits, handling equipment failures, how to cope with spatial disorientation, and some tricks of the trade that may save your life when visual references won't. Don't miss this one. Plus, instructors and rental airplanes available for special night instruction. See registration desk. (Classroom 2)
