WINGS Seminar Schedule

9:00: Registration, refreshments, socializing. 

9:10:  MASTER Pilot Award Presentations.  Clarence Husterlid and Larry Mullis will receive the coveted MASTER PILOT Award. These two airmen are both military veterans and former Piedmont Airline Pilots with outstanding aviation careers.                                                                                                                                  
9:30 Airworthy or Not?: When something doesn't work as intended on your airplane is it legal to fly?  If your nav lights won't turn off but stay on all the time, is your airplane legally airworthy? The left fuel gage always indicates half full and was that way when the aircraft was returned to you after the annual inspection. Is the aircraft airworthy?  Learn what you can you do to legally and safely operate your aircraft with inoperative equipment.

10:30 Stabilized Approaches: Landing long, undershooting the runway, bouncing on the nose wheel first, and being forced to execute a go around are all a result of not flying your airplane at a consistent approach speed and  rate of descent. Learn some valuable tips on nailing the approach to land the first time. Discover some quick math tricks to calculate if you are on a 3 degree glide slope. Learn how much to gingerly adjust your power to remain at the same speed and rate of descent. Pilots have walked away from this seminar commenting that this was the best seminar they ever attended. Don't miss it!
