Pilots often focus on landings, yet 20% of all GA accidents, and nearly 20% of fatal accidents, occur in the takeoff phase of flight. This session will examine takeoff accidents and address common (and hopefully uncommon) misconceptions. This is an open forum presentation with Dan MacDonald, CFI/MEI/AGI, owner of Alpha Zulu (flight school and aircraft rental at Fleming Field), and author of the popular book "Owner Assisted Aircraft Maintenance". Dan presents with an engaging style at aviation events around the region, including Oshkosh. Free treats and hangar flying.
