October 2015 Meeting: Pilot Deviation: It happened To Me, Now What? PDF Print E-mail
Written by Mike Brogley   
Thursday, 17 September 2015

Join us for the October monthly gathering of the South County Airport Pilots Association on Tuesday, October 13th 2015. We gather at 5:30 pm, will be serving dinner at 6:00 pm ($15 members, $20 non-members, Guests Welcome!), hold a brief business meeting at 6:45 pm, and begin our speaker presentation at 7:00pm. Our topic this month, which has been approved for FAA Wings Credit, is:

Pilot Deviation: It Happened to Me, Now What? SCAPA Member Winfried Wilcke and FAASTeam Program Manager Jon Prater from the Oakland FSDO discuss “What happens next” after a pilot deviation

Make a mistake on the highway and you’ll end up with a speeding ticket, more formally known as a “moving violation.”  Make a mistake in the air and you’ll end up with a possible “pilot deviation” and if it goes far enough, an enforcement action by the FAA against your certificate.

SCAPA has invited in two speakers to share an important story regarding pilot deviations.  SCAPA member and pilot Winfried Wilcke and Oakland FSDO FAASTeam Program Manager Jon Prater will share the incident that caused them to meet, and will discuss “What happens next” after a pilot deviation has occurred.  We’ll hear from both perspectives and have an interactive discussion with the audience members about what everyone can learn from their experience.
