Loss of Control Prevention at Second Saturday!
At this month's Second Saturday Seminar, FAA Safety Team Representatives Brig Williams and Phil Mandel will cover the importance of preventing and managing Loss of Control incidents, which have been on the rise in the local area. Local flight instructor Philip Mandel and his student experienced a significant power loss departing Pearson Field earlier this year. Fortunately, they landed back at Pearson without incident. We'll get a look at cockpit video and evaluate what lessons can be learned. CFI Brig Williams will explore recent local accident data, and he'll explain how the FAA's Wings pilot safety program can create safer, more proficient pilots.
· We're delighted to welcome Mindy Fisher to our team of flight instructors at Willamette Aviation! Mindy grew up with a Marine Pilot father, and she followed his footsteps into aviation, and eventually the military. Mindy earned her Private Pilot certificate when she was just 19, in Great Falls, Montana. Since then, she's earned multiple FAA ratings, including Multi-Engine Instructor. In the meantime, Mindy completed her college education, served as a second lieutenant in the U.S. Air Force, and she finds time to teach equine therapy classes. At Willamette Aviation, Mindy combines her love of teaching with her love of flying. She also feels a strong bond with the aviation community. "It's not just a community, but also a family," she says. "Everyone feels welcome to be here." Please be sure to say hello to Mindy the next time you see her on our campus!
Look for more from Willamette Aviation in the next newsletter. Until then, fly smart and safe!
