At Hartzell Propeller, we’re passionate about flight safety and pilot proficiency. That’s why we’re proud to sponsor the AOPA Air Safety Institute’s (ASI) newest video series, “Seasons of Safety.” The four-part live webinar series focuses on the seasonal challenges of staying a safe, proficient pilot.
In the first video, “The Awakening: Coming Out of Hibernation,” ASI Executive Director Richard McSpadden shared helpful tips for preparing for the spring flying season.

According to ASI statistics, the 105 days between Memorial Day and Labor Day are when GA accidents are at their peak. Geske goes on to present several summertime accident case studies to help pilots understand the risks and avoid similar pitfalls.
He shares the following reminders and lessons learned from the case studies:
