FAA WINGS Safety Seminars:
8:30 Recreational and Back Country Flying in New Mexico by Steve Summers, NMDOT Aviation Director and Larry Filener, Chair of NMPA’s Recreational Aviation Committee. The New Mexico Pilots Association and NMDOT Aviation Division will share progress on establishing a coalition of state and federal agencies, organizations, and landowners to plan, preserve, develop, operate, and maintain a network of airstrips in New Mexico. Resources available, safety considerations, and positive impact on NM general aviation will be discussed. The NM Airstrip Network is modeled after Idaho's successful effort.
10:00 Beyond the Briefing: What You Should Teach Your Flying Companions by William Dubois, a pilot who attended a recent Rio Grande Norte 99s Flying Companion Seminar. Afterward, he wrote: “Every pilot should take a Ninety-Nines Flying Companion Seminar. We go to great lengths to learn all we can about flying: Aerodynamics, aeronautical navigation, aircraft systems, FAA regulations, radio communication, and weight and balance. We attend seminars on weather, airspace, mountain flight, emergencies, and more. But how many of us have ever taken a seminar to help us learn more about the most important thing in the airplane? Our loved ones.” Read the rest of William's delightful blog post, at www.planetales.net/plane-school/hangin-with-the-ninety-nines.
