No matter the size or ratings offered everything you do, say, and show sends a message to the student. The question is, what message? - Are you sending the message of a well-organized, thoughtful, friendly, and safety focused program or a message of a disorganized, chaotic school that treats safety as a required compliance instead of an agreed desire? -  Ned Parks, ATP, CFI-H/A, AGI attended the University of Akron and Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. He served as a helicopter pilot in the U.S. Army and while there, was on an international training team teaching leadership and flight topics to military students worldwide.

A wide-ranging root cause model developed by the webinar panelists reveals that reducing fatalities is a very multi-dimensional problem – there is no one “silver bullet” solution, but instead a range of diverse technical, regulatory, training, culture and behavioral challenges that must be met.

This second webinar, presented by the team of aviation and industry experts that created the root cause model, will first ground the participants in the different dimensions of it. Then, members of the team will discuss the many open areas for innovation in the second of two parts of the model that still exist beyond those already known or proposed. Topics that will be covered in this webinar are Aircraft Systems and Aerodynamics, Failure to Regain Aircraft Control, and the Physics of Impacts.

This webinar intends to stimulate the innovative spirit of the EAA and broader aviation community to create novel, effective and implementable solutions to this persistent challenge of LOC accidents and fatalities. The presenters in this second webinar will be Dave Morss – Test pilot and Air Racer, Andy Mogensen, Astronaut and member of the European Space Agency, Bryan Lynch, Pilot and CTO of Reliant Heart and Robert Orlean, Pilot and President of Orlean Technical Solutions.  More Info Here

6.   What is Preventive Maintenance? - EAA WEBINAR - Wed, Nov 6, 2019 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM CDT - Presenter: Mike Busch - The FAA permits a pilot to perform preventive maintenance (PM) on an aircraft owned or operated by that pilot, provided the aircraft is used strictly for non-commercial operations. Pilots may do PM without any A&P involvement, which is pretty cool. But what exactly constitutes PM? In FAR Part 43 Appendix A, the FAA has listed 31 specific tasks that they consider to be PM. But in 2009, the FAA's Rulemaking Division issued a little-known legal interpretation that expands the definition of PM far beyond those 31 items. In this webinar, maintenance expert Mike Busch takes you through these regs. and legal interpretations to shed light on the question of what maintenance tasks it is really permissible for a pilot to do on his own recognizance.

14.  Optimizing passenger flow with a holistic approach to resource management - WEBINAR - DATE: THURSDAY 14 NOVEMBER 2019 - TIME: 10:00 GMT - The right resource allocation is key in improving passenger flow at your airport. But without an holistic view on the operations, inefficient or even counter-productive decisions are easily made. In this webinar we explain how a passenger flow model can be used to determine the optimal resource plan at your airport. - In this webinar, DELMIA Quintiq aviation expert, Dirk Jekkers, talks about passenger flow optimization and the efficient planning of airport resources. - Webinar speaker: Dirk Jekkers, DELMIA Quintiq aviation expert, Dassault Systèmes - Registration INFO HERE

In the first, two pilots worked perfectly together to prevent a disaster. In the second example, two pilots worked against each other, toward a less favorable outcome. Lessons learned have implications for crewed operations, flight instruction, and even drone missions. INFO HERE

Using modern construction materials and techniques, it is built from plans to look like a 2/3 scale Curtiss Jenny, a common WWI trainer. In 2002, Rhon joined Experimental Aircraft Association Chapter 96 and got involved with a chapter project to build an airplane from scratch. He soon became the lead in converting plans and raw materials into a flying machine, while acquiring many new skills along the way. His Jenny first flew on Dec. 30, 2015 at Chino Airport and has now returned home to Compton Airport, having completed the FAA required Phase 1 flight test, and can fly without restrictions.
