March 13, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
Due to the COVID-19 public health crisis, this seminar will only be available for online viewing. IN-PERSON ATTENDANCE WILL NOT BE PERMITTED.**
|Dealing with a Post-Covid environment means there will be changes to the way we fly and what we have relied on to keep us safe. The FAA alerts pilots to occupied ramps, parked up runways and taxi routes pilots are accustomed to using. Building a good defense and expecting the unexpected when returning to active flying is a great strategy, so join us for a discussion on distractions and how to manage them on the surface and in the air, ways to gain proficiency through the WINGS program, and managing our expectations from the time we arrive at the airport to when we get back on the ground.
In this presentation, FAASTeam Program Manager, Karen Arendt will call on pilots to be alert to conditions that have changed in the last year due to COVID-19 pandemic related flight restrictions, including parking of overflow traffic and part-time towers, degradation of flying skills and how to improve manual flying skills, flight risk tool and how to manage risk. This event qualifies for Wings Credit.
Join us to learn about new tools the FAA has implemented to help pilots stay proficient and safe for every flight.
