Soaring Decisions
Single-Pilot Resource Management (SRM) For Gliders
Date and Time:
Saturday, March 3, 2018, starting at 12:30 Eastern Standard Time Download Calendar File
Louis (Chip) Fitzpatrick, CFIG and Brian Moor, CFIG & FAASTeam Representative
Brief Description:

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.
