Mark Gaffney
Brief Description:

The pilot safety meeting will take place in connection with the EAA Chapter 569 July meeting. The presentation will begin by reviewing basic aerodynamics and move toward advanced aerodynamics geared toward the GA pilot flying an experimental aircraft capable of aerobatic flight. Areas covered will include Bernoulli’s principle, critical angle of attack, load factor, airfoil design, parasite and induced drag, adverse yaw, maneuvering speed, snap rolls, base to final spins, and spins on final approach following a stall. The presentation will serve as a good review, but will also help a pilot gain a higher understanding of aerodynamics typically not addressed in the FAA ACS. We will discuss safety risk management as well as best practices to help you gain a better understanding of the aerodynamics of your wing. The pilot safety meeting will be good for Wings credit.
