Electronic Flight Bag Workshop
Safe and effective use of an electronic flight bag to increase situational awareness and improve safety.
Date and Time: Saturday, November 9, 2019, starting at 09:00 Arizona
3 hour, hands-on workshop covering use of the Foreflight electronic flight bag. Foreflight participants will be grouped according to proficiency - basic or advanced. YOU MUST BRING A DEVICE LOADED WITH THE LATEST VERSION OF FOREFLIGHT. This workshop does NOT cover the use of your iOS device. Participants should be familiar with the functional usage of their device.

This is a workshop and NOT A LECTURE. Come prepared with a device and the latest version of Foreflight.
ONLY FOREFLIGHT WILL BE COVERED AT THIS SEMINAR
An electronic flight bag such as Foreflight can greatly increase both situational awareness and safety but only if the pilot is proficient in its use. Attempting to learn the application while you are flying the airplane has the exact opposite effect and can be hazardous. This workshop is intended to help familiarize you with the application so that it is an aid in the cockpit and not a distraction.
Preflight planning is the first step in a successful and safe flight. Electronic Flight Bags can simplify the process of preflight planning and bring most of the information you need such as runway lengths, fuel required, expected weather, and other vital information to one place. This workshop will teach you how to use the EFB to efficiently plan your intended flights.
Once in the air, situational awareness is the key to the successful completion of the flight. Learn how the EFB can bring traffic and weather into your cockpit and help you avoid midair collisions and inadvertent flight into IMC, one of the most deadly mistakes pilots can make - even those with an instrument rating. In addition, your facilitator will cover overall use of the EFB in all phases of flight.
Runway incursions continue to be a significant problem for the GA community. Come learn how the aviation applications covered in this workshop can help, so you do not become the next runway incursion statistic.
Pilot airspace deviations, including pilots 'busting' TFRs, are another area of concern for the GA community. The aviation applications covered in this workshop can provide a significant increase in situational awareness with respect to airspace. Learn how to make use of these tools to ensure you are complying with airspace requirements.
