Brief Description:

This safety seminar is part of an Aviation Day at Rogue Valley International Airport (KMFR), on Saturday July 9th 2022.  More details can be found, here.

Join the Rogue Valley Flying Club and the AOPA Flying Clubs team for a fun-packed day of aviation information and education, including this WINGS safety seminar.

We know that loss of control accidents can happen when pilots are taken outside of their comfort zones—and that a big contributor to being “uncomfortable” is when something happens that we haven’t seen before and so haven’t trained for. As ground dwellers, our instinctive reactions to being startled could save the day through the fight-or-flight and freeze-in place responses. As airmen, these natural reactions could harm us. Training our responses to better handle startling situations, along with stall, spin and upset recovery techniques may help reduce loss of control accidents, but should we first prepare ourselves by getting better at more familiar maneuvers, in order to open up the learning opportunities offered by more intensive training?
