Steve discusses some trends across USAF Aero Clubs in particular due to an uptick in accidents over the past 12 months, and things we should be mindful of while flying as club members. Some of these topics will be revisited throughout the year.
Unfortunately, Steve was out recovering from an injury, and due to some technical difficulties with the projector, Steve’s virtual presence was limited to my laptop screen.
After Steve spoke, I did my best to explain in-person the contents of the new required Annual Fire Safety training video, as well as an updated refueling procedures video (since the previous one has been misplaced).
The videos do a much better job, tan I did live, so please watch/listen to Steve’s announcements, then watch the Annual Fire Safety training video and Refueling videos on the website.
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).
