After the Crash

Of the millions of GA flights every year, only a few end with unplanned off-airport landings. But even though the odds of a crash are slim, the potential consequences are harsh—which is why smart pilots prepare and take basic precautions.

 

Join John Collins, Manager of Aviation Safety Programs/Chief Flight Instructor for the AOPA Air Safety Institute for this important safety seminar. From route planning and emergency rations to signal mirrors and sat phones, John will take a user-friendly, common sense approach at maximizing your chances of survival and rescue after a crash.

 

We’ll talk about:

• The essential ingredients of a good survival kit

• Simple but effective ways to help searchers find you

• The first steps you should take after a crash

• Survival strategies while awaiting rescue

Trivia Night!

Sure, you know lots of important stuff about flying…but how sharp are your trivia skills? Join us for our latest seminar and find out! We’ll test your knowledge of the arcane while also exploring the safety issues behind the trivia. For example, do you know:

How long Lindbergh went without sleep during his transatlantic flight?

How many drinks it takes to degrade performance as much as a poor night’s sleep?

What piece of equipment “caused” Eastern Air Lines Flight 401 to crash?

From vintage navaids to aerodynamics and little-known aircraft, we’ve put together a collection of questions sure to put your knowledge to the test—and make you a safer pilot.
