January Meeting

On Tuesday, January 17th, Mike Cavanaugh will discuss his experiences with the Northern Warfare Training Center mountain rescue team training on Denali in Alaska. Mike was also the Officer in Charge of the High Altitude Rescue Team. In the summer of 1980 the HAT Team trained on Denali. Mike will present a program on the preparation for the training exercise and the challenges of operating above 10,000ft. He will also discuss the rescue of survivors of a plane crash on Denali.

We will meet for “hanger flying” and a barbecue dinner at 6:15, with the presentation starting at 7:00. The meeting is in the Lacy Griffin aviation center. Parking continues to be affected by construction; if no space is available in front of the building, use the spaces in the adjacent maintenance yard (gate 24) or in the viewing area down the road.
