13.  "Flight Control Failures What to Do"  with Ron Berinstein cfii FAASTeam VNY rep. - webmaster SCAUWG.ORG. WHAT do we do when the flight controls we need don't work? Rudder Failure, Aileron Failure, Elevator Failure. Our subject tonight: Major accident video and discussion about the pilot skills you might need to survive.  PROTEUS AIR SERVICES, 2501 Airport Ave., Santa Monica, CA 90405  7 p.m.

13.  "Parachuting! For Sport and Emergency" - Sport and Emergency use of Personal Parachutes - John Wayne Airport Administration Building
3160 Airway Ave., Costa Mesa, CA - Costa Mesa, CA 92626 - If you engage in aerobatic flight, wearing and use of a personal parachute is a Federal Aviation Regulation requirement to take seriously. FARs require that not only a sport jumper, but the pilot of the jump aircraft must also qualify and adhere to regulations. Whether you jump for sport, or are in an aerobatic emergency, advanced knowledge and planned responses only make good survival sense. This seminar will cover the care and cleaning of personal parachutes, their storage, periodic maintenance, preparation and emergency use if needed. Planning to survive an unintended situation is vital.  And, as a bonus: A two minute video inside the C-47 of jumpers reenacting the Normandy D-day invasion.  7 p.m.

21.  "Pre-Ignition and Detonation - Meet The Engine Killers"  WEBINAR - Today’s Aircraft Engines Are Extremely Reliable Provided They Are Operated Correctly.  On Wednesday, August 21, 2019 at 11:00 Eastern Daylight Time (08:00 PDT, 09:00 MDT, 10:00 CDT, 05:00 HST, 07:00 AKDT, 08:00 Arizona, 15:00 GMT)  - This will seem like a pilot’s presentation, but mechanics need to be aware of these issues to help pilots make good decisions when they talk about crazy leaning schemes, fuel contamination, mixing auto fuel and avgas, mixing oil and fuel for 2 cycle engines, picking parts for alterations, flying with excess mag drops, flying with anything at all wrong with the engine, skipping maintenance on magnetos, burning off carbon deposits, turbo operation on a hot day and other operating issues.  More info here

21.  "The Kings On Straight Talk About Aviation Safety" WEBINAR -  This presentation provides a provocative approach with new concepts, new vocabulary, and fresh insights on risk management.  On Wednesday, August 21, 2019 at 19:00 Central Daylight Time (17:00 PDT, 18:00 MDT, 20:00 EDT, 14:00 HST, 16:00 AKDT, 17:00 Arizona, 00:00 GMT) -While discussions about safety are particularly important to general aviation, some discussions on the subject aren’t particularly helpful or insightful and can actually be counter-productive.

We will talk about positive, constructive tools that you can use as a flight instructor that are much more beneficial and productive. Finally, we will encourage you as flight instructors to exercise leadership to change the vocabulary of the entire aviation community.
As a flight instructor you are leader in the aviation community. As such you will have the opportunity to identify bad habits we all practice collectively and change them. Our shared bad habits have to do with how we manage aviation safety. In this course you will identify those bad habits and learn how to substitute new, more productive practices in their place.  LIVEChat is available during this presentation. The Kings will answer as many questions as time allows.   To view further details and registration information for this webinar, click here.

28.   Loss of Control – Root Causes and Innovation Opportunities - EAA WEBINAR - Wed, Aug 28, 2019 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM CDT - Presenter: Loss of Control Committee Members

This webinar continues the discussion initiated at AirVenture to deeply define the root causes of Loss of Control accidents. 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 challenged that must work together.

This webinar, presented by the aviation and industry experts that created the root cause model, will first ground the participants in the different dimensions of it. Then, the panel will discuss the many open areas for innovation that still exist beyond those already known or proposed. This discussion 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. Qualifies for FAA WINGS credit.  Registration Here

3.  IMC CLUB - IFR FLIGHT SCENARIOS DISCUSSION - With Jay Steffenhagen - For our Sept EAA Chapter 92 meeting, join us for the rollout of a new meeting program format: the IMC Club.

There are no right or wrong answers, but the group gets to define and evaluate the risks and sort out the best way to proceed.  Irvine Ranch Water District HQ, 15500 Sand Canyon Ave., Community Conference Room, Irvine, CA 92618   7 p.m.

4.   Double Standard? - EAA WEBINAR - Wed, Sept 4, 2019 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM CDT - Presenter: Mike Busch

The FAA doesn't make it easy to earn an A&P mechanic certificate. It requires 30 months full-time or 4,800 hours part-time experience swinging wrenches on aircraft before you're even eligible to take the exams. There are four exams: three knowledge tests and one all-day oral/practical exam. However, once a person earns his A&P, there is no requirement to get recurrent training — ever! And there are no mechanic "type ratings" — any A&P is legal to swing wrenches on anything from a J-3 Cub to a Boeing 747 to a Blackhawk helicopter. In this webinar, Mike Busch asks why the FAA requires pilots to get flight reviews every two years, instrument proficiency checks every six months, and type ratings for large airplanes and turbojets, yet it grants mechanics a lifetime license to swing wrenches on anything that flies without requiring any sort of periodic review or recurrent training. Qualifies for FAA WINGS and AMT credit.  Register Here

4.   Pilot Proficiency and Flight Reviews - With Karen Arendt, FPM SJC FSDO; Eric Cook, DPE - Live demonstration and discussion on the FAA's only proficiency program for GA pilots - Paso Robles Municipal Airport, Main Terminal, 2nd Floor, 4912 Wing Way, Paso Robles, CA 93446  6:30 p.m.

5.  CFI Open Forum - Teaching Stabilized Approaches and Go-Arounds; All Pilots Welcome - Speaker(s): Karen Arendt, FPM; Eric Cook, DPE - We’ll define and discuss stabilized approaches and go-arounds. Finally we’ll give you some tips and tricks that will help you to avoid loss of control in any aircraft. This discussion is an opportunity to collaborate and develop best practices, to mitigate the risks identified in the discussion, for both the Instructor and the student.  - Together as a Team, the Instructors and Designated Pilot Examiners combined knowledge and experience provides the most effective pilot training and evaluation.

For many years we’ve been developing automation for general aviation pilots and we’ve encouraged pilots to use it. That’s led to a reduced “hands on” workload and increased situational awareness. Those are good things. But paradoxically, reliance on automation is beginning to erode basic pilot skills and, when the situation calls for pilots to take over, they’re often not performing as well as they would have if they were hand flying all along.   San Luis Obispo County Fire Department, 4671 Broad Street. San Luis Obispo, CA 93401 - 6:30 p.m.

5.   Mike Busch on General Aviation Maintenance and Safety. - With Mike Busch - A&P/IA - Mike is fresh back from Oshkosh.

10. Free Webinar: Sustainable Aviation Fuel 101 - While sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) is a drop-in replacement for turbine engines, there is a lot more to this new fuel than meets the eye. Manufacturing and distributing SAF is just a technological hurdle, but getting the new fuel into widespread use is going to require a robust pull on the demand side. Aircraft operators need to know what SAF is, how it runs in turbine engines, how it benefits the environment, where it can be purchased, and how much it will cost. Join us on September 10 at 1:30 p.m. ET for this free one-hour webinar on SAF presented by Marcelo Goncalves of Embraer and Thomas Parsons of Air BP.   Registration here
