PIQUA, Ohio, May 18, 2020 – The next Air Safety Institute’s webinar in its four-part Seasons of Safety series is scheduled for 8 p.m. EST, Wednesday, May 20. Sponsored by Hartzell Propeller, the next webinar episode, 105 Days of Safe Summer Flying, delves into the challenges of summer flying.
AOPA’s Air Safety Institute’s Manager of Aviation Safety Rob Geske will present three accident cases to help pilots understand the dangers associated with summer flying. During the livestream, the institute’s staff will be on hand to answer questions.
The first webinar, The Awakening – Coming Out of Hibernation, which aired March 5, generated more than 10,000 views. It covered the keys to regaining pilot proficiency and making sure the airplane and other equipment is ready for flight.
“The AOPA Air Safety Institute’s singular focus on general aviation safety and our company passion for flight and continually improving pilot skills were paramount in getting behind this program,” said Hartzell Propeller President JJ Frigge. “This series will keep safety and awareness front and center even though some pilot proficiency forums won’t be conducted this year at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh due to the pandemic.”
