MARCH

To RSVP or for more information please contact Flight 32 Captain Bill Nalepka at 416-222-2124 or email nalepka@rogers.com .
March 21, North York, ON: Weather-wise + Pre-flight Walk-arounds. 3rdfloor auditorium, 4900 Yonge Street from 7 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. Weather is the most critical and complex variable that affects flying. But you don't have to be a meteorologist to understand weather or to make sound weather flight decisions. Being weather-wise — the ability to integrate official reports and forecasts with what's outside your cockpit — is a valuable skill. Wouldn't you like to be weather-wise? Continuing on with the pre-flight preparations, System Safety’s Will Boles will then explain how to perform a walk-around of an aircraft from the maintenance perspective (especially after it hasn’t been flown for a period of time). This is a good review for anyone who owns an aircraft or who rents an aircraft. This presentation will help you become more aware of areas of concern for the aircraft prior to the wheels leaving the ground. The aircraft will be covered from the spinner to the tail navigation light lens and from wingtip to wingtip. For more information contact Transport Canada System Safety at 416-952-0175 or visit www.tc.gc.ca/OntarioRegion/civilaviatio ... minars.htm.
