Radar Services for VFR Pilots byJohn Gaitskill, CFI.
Although available on a "work load permitting" basis, ATC can provide flight following for VFR flights. This includes traffic call outs and vectors for navigation if needed. A pilot who declares an emergency will get ATC priority over all other traffic.

Pilot and Aircraft Performance by Tom Freeman, NCDOT Aviation Safety Specialist
The analysis of any flight should include both the performance parameters of the aircraft and the capabilities of the pilot. The net effect is the ability for the pilot to plan a successful flight with a good margin of safety built in. This interactive presentation uses “real life” video scenarios with associated risk factors and opportunities to increase safety.
Tom will also discuss the techniques that can be used to maximize pilot proficiency in the shortest, most efficient amount of time. Concluding the presentation is an open discussion on the high number of landing accidents in 2012. Out of the total of 27 accidents, 12 were landing accidents (NTSB final and preliminary reports).
