Soaring Decisions - (Note new date and location!!)
Single-Pilot Resource Management (SRM) For Gliders
Date and Time:
Saturday, March 31, 2018, starting at 12:30 Eastern Daylight Time Download Calendar File
Bob Lacovara, Com G, CFIG and Brian Moor, CFIG & FAASTeam Representative
Brief Description:

Please Note: This is a date and location change from the seminar cancelled due to the storm on March 3.

While crew resource management (CRM) focuses on pilots operating in crew environments, many of the concepts apply to single pilot operations (SRM).  Please join us at this interesting seminar for a discussion on the art and science of managing all resources available, prior to and during flight to ensure a successful outcome to each flight.  While this presentation is being sponsored by the Philadelphia Glider Council, and uses soaring examples, the concepts apply to all pilots who fly alone, or with non-aviation passengers. So even if you have never flown a glider, come on out and learn something new, and enjoy an exposure to soaring.

Seating is limited so please click on the link below and register for this event today!!!!
