The AOPA Air Safety Foundation's newest interactive program on airspace is now available as a Seminar-in-a-Box ®. The dynamic 36-minute program, titled "Mission: Possible - Navigating Today's Special Use Airspace," shows pilots how to deal with military lights-out training, an operation now being conducted in many military operations areas around the country. ( See a three-minute video clip from the seminar.)
To order the "Mission: Possible" Seminar-in-a-Box ®, call 800/638-3101 or visit the Air Safety Foundation Online Safety Center at www.asf.org, and click on the Safety Seminars button. Seminar-in-a-Box ® programs are free, but there is a $24.95 charge for shipping and handling.
The new seminar includes a DVD based on the interactive online course. The do-it-yourself safety program is meant for easy use by flying clubs, student groups, EAA chapters, or other local pilot groups. Also in the Seminar-in-a-Box ® package are presenter notes and copies of the Air Safety Foundation's printed Lights-Out Safety Advisor.
"Not every pilot can get to one of the premier live Air Safety Foundation safety seminars held in larger cities," said Kevin Murphy, Air Safety Foundation vice president of training. "These Seminars-in-a-Box ® allow pilots in smaller communities to enjoy the same high-quality safety seminars."
Other foundation Seminar-in-a-Box ® programs include Airspace Refresher, Collision Avoidance, Fuel Awareness, GPS for VFR Operations, Maneuvering Flight, Never Again, More Never Again, Operations at Towered Airports, Spatial Disorientation, Trigger Tapes, Ups and Downs of Takeoffs and Landings, and Weather Tactics.
Pilots can find complete descriptions of each program, with equipment and software requirements and recommendations for selecting a presenter, on the Air Safety Foundation Online Safety Center at www.asf.org.
The AOPA Air Safety Foundation was established in 1950 as the safety arm of AOPA, and is the world's largest GA-specific safety research and pilot education organization. Its safety programs and publications are available free to all pilots. Since ASF was founded in 1950, the GA accident rate has declined by about 90 percent.
