In the wake of the Roseville, California, maneuvering flight crash last Sunday, which generated anti-GA publicity, the AOPA Air Safety Foundation is encouraging pilots to review the basics of low and slow flight. The foundation's full-length Maneuvering Flight: Hazardous to Your Health? DVD and a free companion Safety Advisor are both available to pilots nationwide. The DVD is sold for $19.95 through Sporty's Pilot Shop, and the Safety Advisor is available for free download from the Air Safety Foundation's Web site.
