Two seats are available for an O-Flight on July 7. Login and sign up if you would like to go flying!
We had to move the Glider O-Flights to Sunday, May 6. No one will be removed that has already signed up, so please cancel using the sign-up form if you will be unable to attend on the new date.
The Seattle Times has a story about Don Bateman, who invented the “ground-proximity-warning-system” technology used on airplanes. His invention has reduced controlled flight into terrain crashes by 99.9% for commercial aircraft. From the article:
The technology eliminated the “No. 1 killer in aviation for decades,” said Bill Voss, chief executive of the Flight Safety Foundation. “It’s accepted within the industry that Don Bateman has probably saved more lives than any single person in the history of aviation.”
There are still 2 seats open for the Orientation Flight on January 29 at 1300. Go flying while we have the chance!
This video was sent to us from Lt Larricq of the San Juan Composite Squadron and Maj Micheletti, the COWG DAE. The video was originally posted on AvWeb in June 2010.
