Title:
Safety Seminar at PWK Traffic Awareness and Collision Avoidance
Topic:
Seeing and avoiding sounds pretty easy on a nice VFR day, but as we have all experienced, seeing planes isn't easy.
Date and Time:
Wednesday, February 27, 2019, starting at 19:30 Central Standard Time Download Calendar File
Speaker(s):
Bob Schmelzer, DPE, CFIA, CFII, MEI
Brief Description:

Join us for our semi-monthly safety seminar. The objective: fly safer by being ready for the unexpected.

ATC: November 123 Papa Whiskey, turn right twenty degrees for noise abatement. YOU: Chicago Approach, 3 Papa Whiskey. I am 8,000 feet over farmland, what kind of noise abatement issue? ATC: There is a United 737 at your 11 o'clock and if you don't turn there is going to be a lot of noise when you hit him.

Yes, seeing and avoiding sounds pretty easy on a nice VFR day, but as we have all experienced, seeing and keeping the all the traffic around you is far more challenging. Bob Schmelzer might have been that UAL pilot bearing down on you. He had TCAS that is legal for traffic avoidance. You have Mark I eyeballs that have some miles on them.

NOTE: There is an IMC Club meeting prior to this one. Each has a separate registration. Please join us for both but be sure to register for both separately.
