Mary Jo Kiggins of Syracuse, New York, is the 2005 second-quarter winner of a Sporty's handheld transceiver, the door prize for attending an AOPA Air Safety Foundation seminar. The Air Safety Foundation and Sporty's award one door prize each quarter.
Kiggins' name was drawn from the more than 7,000 people who attended Air Safety Foundation Safety Seminars during the quarter. She attended The Last Five Miles seminar. Information on when it and other Air Safety Foundation seminars will be coming to your area is available online.
The Last Five Miles teaches pilots three reasons why they should descend early (and one instance in which that would be a mistake), when a straight-in approach can be safe and legal, how to safely handle traffic pattern conflicts, and more.
