The Human Factor

On Tuesday, June 18th, at our next general meeting, Mike Cavanaugh will present a WINGS credit program entitled The Human Factor. The sad reality is that the most fragile part of an aircraft (the pilot) is also the most common source of aviation accidents. We do an annual evaluation of potential problems in our planes; let’s listen to Mike’s presentation and do an evaluation of ourselves!

Mike’s presentation will follow the meal at 6:15 in the Lacy Griffin aviation center. If no parking space is available in front of the building, use the spaces in the adjacent maintenance yard (gate 24), in the viewing area down the road, or in the small lot catty-cornered to the Lacy Griffin center.

Our monthly Fly-In Lunch on Saturday, April 20th will be to Hickory Regional Airport (HKY) which is 59 NM east northeast of AVL. Plan your flight to arrive at noon at the restaurant there. As always, the pilot in command has the final go/no go decision about the safety of the flight.
