January 2020 Safety Meeting

Discussion about ice and snow hazards, FAA OTC medication update (given that it’s cold and flu season, please review this briefly), and flight controls while taxiing.

There was mention of the Garmin G5 being installed in aircraft, the manual to familiarize yourself with its operation is on the Resources page, and a link to the manual here: https://www.hanscomaeroclub.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/09/190-01112-12_B.pdf

October 2019 Safety Meeting – Aircraft Fire Emergencies

For October 2019 (Fire Safety month), we discuss emergency procedures for fires on the ground (during startup) and in flight.

Then, we hear from Massport Deputy Chief Eric Warren for more details on the specific capabilities of Massport at Hanscom, and a live demo of Engine 51 (one of 2 ARFFs on-site).

Many thanks to the Massport Fire crew for coming to speak with us and show us your equipment first-hand!

September 2019 Safety Meeting

Review of current airplane status (including upgrades to Warrior N43128). 

Steve gives an overview of the state of the club including rates. 
Dave Noones reviews the new ICAO flight plans, Dave and Marc V. are working to incorporate it on the Flight Plan Form we use when dispatching aircraft.

Apologies in advance for the camera switch and motion, ran out of memory during Steve’s portion, so had to switch to backup (cell phone).
