Tuesday, May 9, 2017 -- Dinner Meeting and Program: "Risk Management in Everyday Flight"
Written by Bette Gardner   
Monday, 24 April 2017
We focus this evening on managing the risk of flying.

Implementing a risk management process into our everyday flying is an important aspect of increasing flight safety. The risk management process includes identifying hazards, evaluating the associated risk, and then finding ways to mitigate the risks. Join us as we look at some practical ways we, as pilots, can apply these principles in our flying, with an emphasis on pre-flight planning. You will have the opportunity to practice with sample scenarios.

About our speaker: SCAPA member Coby Sena is a full-time CFI with a strong interest in safety and risk management. When not instructing, Coby is active in Civil Air Patrol as an instructor pilot, Safety Officer, and Standards and Evaluation Officer.
