Additional Event Information & Acknowledgement of Industry Sponsor(s):

More accidents occur in the landing phase of flight than any other.  It is the close proximity to the ground that leaves fewer margins for error.  Some pilots never really master the basics, and then it's only a matter of time before they have a problem.  Is the runway long enough?  Are there obstructions?  What is the density altitude?  Is there a cross-wind?  How good is your airspeed control?  Do you know how to successfully recover from a bounced landing or when to go around?  These are just some of the considerations that are addressed in this Safety Seminar

This event is being held in conjunction with the 13th Annual Queen City Airport Accuracy Landing Contest. (rain date for accuracy landing contest is Sunday the following day)  The briefing for the Spot Landing contest will begin after the Safety Seminar at approximately 11:15 AM.  For more information on the requirements to participate and to sign up please call Paul Senyak 610-360-0883.
