July 25 (Wed) 7:00pm Recovering from Inverted Flight

Event Date: 
Wednesday, July 25, 2018 - 7:00pm

You thought you were clear of the B757’s wake turbulence as you crossed the bay towards Coyote Hills, then in a flash you were inverted.  What do you do and you have less that a couple of seconds to decide. A reflex reaction may not be correct. Only with awareness, expectation and training will you know.  This seminar is the beginning of your training and may save your life

 

Tom will discuss the dos and don'ts of recovering from unintentional inverted flight, and the underlying whys. He will discuss stall and spin avoidance during the recovery as well as the physiological sensing of motion and orientation, maintaining 3D spatial awareness and G tolerance.

 

Tom Myers has been flying competitive aerobatics for twenty-eight years. He has over 2,000 flight hours, mostly NOT straight, or level, or upright. He is a director emeritus of the International Aerobatic Club, and is the chairman of its Technical Committee. He has performed inner ear research at the Stanford Medical Center, and altered gravity vector environment research at NASA Ames.

 

This event qualifies for FAA Wings credit.
