Brief Description:

Buffalo's CFI Quarterly Open Forum is Co-hosted with WNY Flying Club, "Wings Spring Thing". The CFI  Safety Forum topic includes "Teaching Airworthiness Awareness, System Component Failure and Forced Landing."  Familiar topics for many airman but always worth a timely review. Also, we will be sharing  with members of the WNY Flying Club. Likewise their speakers sharing their practical knowledge. A special thanks to their "Interest in Aviation Safety" and our own long-time contributing member CFII, John Galuski for bringing this interesting speaker group together.

At this event we will discuss best practices for teaching and learning Airworthiness Awareness in the hope that all pilots will be better prepared to avoid system/component failure events.  We will also talk about enabling pilots to deal with an engine failure in flight. 

This is a forum so your participation is essential to success.  We really need to hear from you so be sure to join in the discussion.

 All Pilots or Pilots in training are welcome and, by attending, of course will be Wings Credited
