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

The seminar runs from 8:00 am until 4 pm on March 23, 2018. Sign-in starting at 7:30 AM See below for details.

Also, there is a different format this year.  In years past, we have presented many hours of safety ideas and information to pilots.  This year, we are adding in afternoon breakout sessions specifically designed for pilots (operations), maintenance personnel (maintainers) and for management personnel each.  So, there are three breakout rooms in the afternoon after lunch.  Please invite your company's management personnel to attend, as this notice typically only reaches out to pilots and mechanics. 

Like years past, we will have a great array of presenters with both updates and new thought-provoking material for you to take with you.  This year, we are adding to that a vender area to mill around in during the breaks to speak to aviation companies about what they have to offer.  We are also inviting helicopter manufacturers to bring in rotorcraft for display.    Attendees for the full day will receive all the basic knowledge and advanced knowledge WINGS. credits for a flight review (additional flight credits needed, of course). Attendees may also receive AMT credits.

Pastries and coffee will be the morning treat   Snacks and Lunch are sponsored by Helicopter Safety Alliance (thanks, Stan Rose, President, HSA).
