Brief Description:

Presenter Jurg Grossenbacher, FAAST Program Manager from the Milwaukee FSDO. We will discuss the importance of the flight review and the weight that it carries in general aviation safety. We will discuss several accidents that occurred in Wisconsin that show the importance of a proper, thorough flight review.The topic will be presented by FAASTeam Program Manager.

This seminar will address eveyone regardless of the certificate or experience, so please, take some time out of your busy life and join us!

Part III; Weather Wise by Andy Miller, AOPA Great Lakes Ambassador

Presenter Andy Miller, AOPA's Great Lakes Ambassador, will guide the discussion about what went wrong, why, and how to avoid making the same mistakes. 

Weather is often blamed as the cause of accidents when, in reality, it’s poor decision making that’s the culprit. The go/no-go decision-making process starts long before entering the cockpit. But the right choice at a crucial moment before or during a flight can be difficult to make. In this seminar from the AOPA Air Safety Institute, you’ll learn:


-Why getting the big weather picture is important

-How to improve your go/no-go decision-making process

-Tips to “weatherize” your mindset and avoid traps like flying VFR into IMC

-Why technology can be a great tool and your worst enemy in weather flying
