Leave your ipads and Garmins turned off and get a short refresher on basic cross country preflight planning skills. We will be using a “wireless” Green Bay Sectional, Aviation Sectional Plotter and a basic E6b computer to figure out the course, speed, time and distance to be traveled from KSTE to KCLI.

Takeoffs & Landings: Preventing an Accident AND …
Investigation and Analysis of Two GA Crashes
Master CFI, DPE, FAASTeam Lead Rep and CFI of the Year Woody Minar will give two presentations – Takeoffs & Landings: Preventing an Accident (very popular seminar given at Oshkosh) AND a presentation on the events and causal factors leading up to the crashes of two aircraft (land and seaplane) by two of his friends.
The latter presentation will include graphics and photos of the crash sites along with the retrievals. You will no doubt be impacted and will leave you wondering how all the occupants survived.
“Wanda, I was first going to talk about the crash of our Cherokee Six-300 on July 14th. Then I thought I should add the crash of a seaplane a year ago (wheels down landing on a lake) by another friend of mine. … well, yesterday, another pilot friend of mine called me to say he crashed his Zenith 750. I went to the crash site today and took some pictures. It should be interesting to tie the casual factors together. I have some 600 combined hours in those three airplanes. Woody”
