|Have you ever taken a kid on their first flight? As a pilot, having the opportunity to ignite the passion for aviation in a young person’s soul means the world, but you need to keep in mind that safety always comes first. With new passengers, a pilot needs to take many safety precautions.
San Carlos Flight Center invites Young Eagles Chapter 20 Coordinator, Michael Chang to cover the procedures a pilot must take to safely conduct an EAA Young Eagles Flight. In this seminar, Michael will provide an overview of the Young Eagles program, review passenger management techniques, and share ways other pilots can get involved within this organization.
Inspire the next generation of pilots by partaking in this program, and refresh yourself on ways to handle passengers in complex situations.
Michael Chang is a naval architect/marine engineer. He holds a Sport Pilot Certificate and has been flying for over six years. He is both EAA Chapter 20’s Technical Counselor and Young Eagles Coordinator. He is presently building a Zenith Cruzer 750. He is also a docent at the Hiller Aviation Museum.
