The FAA Safety Team will be presenting a Loss of Control and Survival presentation. This will be conducted at the KSPA FBO bottom conference room over a lunch period between 12.00 pm to 2.30 pm.

 

 Loss of control is a result of a failure to anticipate and mitigate situations that put the flight at risk of exceeding the limitations imposed by two of the fundamental risk factors in aviation, you the Pilot and the Aircraft you fly.

 

Please join us for this important topic presentation.

 

Our December Christmas meeting will be on Monday December11th at Wades at 6.00 pm
