Automation Gotchas: Taming the Automation Monster with Mike Jesch

A VC99's Pilot Proficiency Class

Wednesday, Mar 11  7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Knowing that traps exist in our increasingly automated aircraft is the first step in becoming their master. Knowing what they look like is the next. But to truly beat them at their game, one must know how to deal with them when – not if – they arise. The class will explore a range of automation issues that may arise, and take a look at how not to let them derail your flights. Captain Mike has over 40 years of flying experience, 35 of them in airline flying. He flies a highly automated Boeing 737 at work, and an increasingly automated Cessna 182 for his “real” flying. He constantly strives to hone his skills attempting to become the master of these tools and not be caught by surprise.

Instructor:  Captain Mike Jesch, ATP, CFI, CFII, MEI, AGI, AGII, With 40 years of flying experience, including more than 30 in airline flying, Captain Mike brings a wealth of experience to the table. Mike Jesch has been a ground and flight instructor since 1985, and has flown many thousands of hours “in The System.” His (mostly) day job has been with a major airline since 1987, where he has flown as Captain on the Boeing 737 since 2002. But his “real” flying takes place in his IFR-equipped Cessna 182 based at Fullerton, CA, or whatever his clients show up in to fly that day. He is a two-time Master CFI, and a FAASTeam Lead Representative in the Long Beach (CA) FSDO. As a speaker on the national stage, he has presented on a wide range of subjects across the country for numerous groups, including AOPA, many EAA Chapters, the Ninety-Nines, and many more. Mike is a member of the Society of Aviation Flight Educators (SAFE).
