Brief Description:

At this event we will discuss best practices for teaching Airworthiness Awareness in the hope that students will learn how to avoid system/component failure events.  We also talk about best practices for systems operation and how to prepare students 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. 

Flight Instructors, Ground Instructors, Designated Pilot Examiners, and Instructors in training are welcome and encouraged to attend. Join your flight instructor colleagues and take an active role in improving safety in flight training!  Click on the link below and register TODAY!

There will be four very experienced Designated Pilot Examiners (Airplane/Helicopter) attending this event to discuss common problems they have experienced with applicants regarding the use of the recently new Risk-Based ACS and the Practical Test.

There are two Part 61 Flight Schools operating at the Bulverde Airport utilizing both airplanes and helicopters.  This can present some issues with runway safety and collision avoidance at times operating both categories of aircraft in a non-controlled environment.  Safe operating procedures for joint use of airplane/helicopters will be discussed in the interest of all users of the Bulverde Airpark Airport.
