June 10 (Sat) 12:00pm Mountain Flying and Emergency Preparedness

Event Date: 
Saturday, June 10, 2017 - 12:00pm

Flying in the mountains can be some of the most amazingly beautiful and satisfying flying you may ever accomplish. But it comes with increased risk, and, thereby increased responsibility. Every day, GA pilots who fly in the mountains safely calculate and plan for such risks.
 

Join CFI Adam Kelly for an overview of elements of mountain flying. We'll look at how terrain and mountain weather patterns affect one another and what that means to pilots of small aircraft and focus on emergency preparedness and survival gear.

Adam Kelly is a flight instructor and regular safety seminar speaker at San Carlos Flight Center. He has been in love with aviation since he was a child, and comes from a family of accomplished aviators. He earned his Private Pilot Certificate in 2009 and in 2012 started pursuing aviation full time. Now he no longer works a day in his life.
