Situational Awareness Safety Meeting
How situationally aware are you when flying? Come join us as we discuss the importance of situational awareness for pilots.
Date and Time:
Saturday, October 16, 2021, starting at 10:30 Central Daylight Time Download Calendar File
Mark Isackson, Legacy Aviation Chief Flight Instructor; Chris Thompson KFSD Tower Chief
Brief Description:

Topics to be discussed:

  • Preflight: Flight planning, airspace, NOTAMS, weather briefings, use of websites, aircraft performance, airport layout, frequencies, emergency plan(s).
  • Inflight: Single pilot resource management, communication, planning ahead.  
  • Postflight: NASA report (should a safety issue arise).
  • Sioux Falls (KFSD) Operations (Guest Speaker from the FSD ATC):

The three stages of situational awareness are:

  • Information gathering.
  • Understanding information.
  • Anticipation.

Situational awareness can be defined simply as “knowing what is going on around us”, or more technically – as “the perception of the elements in the environment within a volume of time and space". Situational Awareness influences our decision making and allows us to stay ahead of the aircraft. It helps us develop a mental picture of the world around us and use that mental picture to anticipate the future.
