May 18 (Sat) 12pm - Mountain Flying

Event Date: 
Saturday, May 18, 2019 - 12:00pm


Flying in the mountains can be some of the most beautiful, challenging, and satisfying flying you will ever do.  However, it comes with increased risk, and therefore demands increased planning and awareness.  Every day, GA pilots who fly in the mountains safely calculate and plan for such risks, and you can too.  For the last 8 years Jason Miller and his team at The Finer Points have been hosting mountain flying weekends which focus on the skills required to fly safely in the mountains, contingency planning, and survival skills.  Join us on May 18th for a safety seminar which covers the highlights from these popular fly out adventures, and find out how to safely participate in the 2019 training sessions.



Jason Miller is a CFII with more than 18 years of aviation experience and thousands of hours of instruction given. Jason is a member of the FAA safety team, a speaker for AOPA’s Air Safety Institute and was nominated by the FAA for the 2009 Flight Instructor of the Year Award.  “I am passionate about developing systems that help pilots become safer and more efficient,” says Miller.  Using his background as a performer and experience on the flight line, Jason created The Finer Points – Aviation Podcast, one of the most recognized and well respected aviation podcasts in the world.  The critically acclaimed podcast has delivered more than 3m flight training files to pilots all over the world.
