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

The seminar runs from 8:00 am until 4 pm on April 20th, 2018. Sign-in starting at 7:30 AM See below for details.  Important note: On just April 17 we learned that there is a $5 charge for parking for non-students.  Typically, we would have found a sponsor to pick up this charge to make this a totally free event for attendees, but with the short notice, this couldn't be arranged.  With lunch provided, we hope you will not be kept away from this event for the parking fee.  We think you find this event well worth your attendance!

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.  

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 vendor 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).  

This year’s venue address is Portland Community College Rock Creek Campus 17705 NW Springville Rd Portland OR 97229

You can help us out by going to, finding this event on the seminars page, and registering (CE0380353).  That way, we’ll have enough lunch for everyone attending.  As usual, attendance is free.
