Weather is often blamed as the cause of accidents when, in reality, it’s poor decision making that’s the culprit. Arm yourself to make the right weather choices at crucial moments before and during flight.

Here’s what you’ll learn:

Why getting the big weather picture is important
How to improve your go/no-go decision-making process
Tips to “weatherize” your mindset and avoid traps like flying VFR into IMC
Why technology can be a great tool and your worst enemy in weather flying

August membership meeting – August 15th

On Wednesday evening, August 15, we will have our monthly member meeting with a BBQ Dinner starting at 18:00 also at our chapter hangar. We’ll try a couple of new things out this month including having a few door prizes. Wear your name tag or get one at the door along with a door prize ticket. After a short business meeting, we’ll have a program as a “Recap to Oshkosh.” We’ve invited those who participated at Oshkosh to come up and share your experiences at the week-long convention, or your experiences coming and going. We had almost a dozen chapter members who made the trek; it should be an interesting and informal evening. Forecast high temperature for Wednesday is, as of today, a “cool” 91 degrees so bring a jacket.
