The AOPA’s Air Safety Foundation will be returning to Texas this coming week with their After the Crash: Surviving An Aircraft Accident seminar. Though aircraft accidents are rare to most pilots, they still happen. It is best to be prepared with the proper knowledge and supplies in case you are stranded in a remote area while awaiting help to arrive.
The seminar will cover the following items:
- How and what to pack in a survival kit
- Ways to help search parties find you
- What to do first immediately after the off airport landing
- How to survive will awaiting rescue
The seminar will be put on in Houston, San Antonio, and Austin on three consecutive nights, the 20th-22nd, so everyone will get a chance to attend. The location and times are below.
No signup is necessary, just show up and be ready to learn. The seminar does count for WINGs credit and there will be a sign in sheet at each event.
The AOPA Air Safety Foundation puts on numerous seminars throughout the country during the year covering a wide variety of topics relevant to general aviation pilots. The content is always interesting and the presenter always knowledgeable and entertaining. Hope to see you there!
