Thursday, August 20, 7PM “Introduction To Powered Paragliding”
Topic: Take a journey through the evolution of the sport from the 1980’s when parachutes were adopted to homemade airplanes Select Number: EA13101286 Description:

 Powered Paragliding is perhaps the safest form of solo flight – as well as being the least costly. These early flights were with varying degrees of success, lasting merely seconds to a few minutes – contrasted to today’s technology which is safe, reliable, and accessible.

Today’s PPG Pilots routinely fly @ or above 10K AGL…using nothing more than a 2 stroke engine and a paraglider!

Friday, August 21, 7 PM “There I Was! The Importance of Transition Training in Preventing LOC” Topic: Transition training can help a pilot handle emergencies and threats, which are often compounding factors in LOC. Select Number: EA17101416 Description:

Transition training is one of the most important things a pilot can do to be prepared in a new type of aircraft. A few weeks ago, I executed a safe emergency landing after having an engine failure in a Baron while giving instruction to the owner. A few hours before that and only 10 miles away, a new RV8A owner landed on a highway after fuel starvation with one empty wing tank and one fuel tank. While many see transition training as merely an insurance requirement, it can make a large difference in the pilot’s ability to handle unanticipated threats and emergencies, which are often compounding factors in Loss of Control. Ride along and see why transition training is so important in preventing loss of control!
