Steve gives updates on aircraft status, and also about the pending PGA Tour in June that will impact ramp and hangar space as well as operations (e.g. touch and goes, etc).
Nate covers the recent incident in FL with the Cessna 208 Caravan (N333LD) landed by a passenger, tie-ins to last month’s topic of altered mental status / in-flight medical emergencies, and passenger briefs.
Great to be back in person! This month, we covered some medical emergencies, signs, and symptoms related to altered mental status, specifically stroke, hypoxia, and CO poisoning. This isn’t just about pilots, but considerations regarding your passengers too.
Special thanks to Rick for bringing some Paramedic insights and knowledge to the discussion.
This one ran a little long, and we’re rusty on the camera work after all this time, but the discussion was good and I highly encourage you to sit through the video in its entirety.
Steve discuss some updates on aircraft status and operations. Then a review of go-arounds with an interesting video from Chief Pilot Mike MacMann with (some funny but also many serious) examples of when go-arounds would be the preferred course of action.
Fun fact: Mike has personally landed on the short runway near the beach in the video (it’s in St. Barts in the Carribbean) and can personally speak to the difficulty landing there.
Finally, a plug for an upcoming FAAST seminar on Aviation Emergency First Responder Training that I took, good for 4 hours of WINGS or MA/CT CEUs (for EMTs/Nurses). A practical session will be in May in Groton, CT.
Steve provides updates about the hangar door project, airplane status, and upcoming private pilot ground school / instrument ground school in 2022. Nate reviews power loss during takeoff emergency procedures, including an ASI video of “The Impossible Turn.”
