Seminar Day

by on Aug.15, 2011, under Flying

Sat­ur­day was Sem­i­nar Day for the pilots and the spous­es went tour­ing to Pike Peak and Gar­den of the Gods. The large room sem­i­nars were video streamed to all of COPA start­ing with Curt San­fords “State of COPA” address, the bot­tom line is we are doing well. Then Cirrus“s Dale K and Brent W gave the “State of Cir­rus” and the bot­tom line was the future is bright, but we had a near death expe­ri­ence. Then Rick Beach put on the annu­al safe­ty review and pre­sent­ed a com­pelling case for con­sid­er­ing CAPs as an ear­ly option vers­es a last resort. Lives can be saved was the mes­sage. Since the main­stream was video archived I attend­ed the NEXRAD pre­sen­ta­tion by Dr. David Strahle, which caused me to real­ize how lit­tle I real­ly knew. This was excel­lent stuff. As a foot note, when I returned, I viewed the Cir­rus reli­a­bil­i­ty pre­sen­ta­tion on the web, which means you can be in two places at once with the aid of tech­nol­o­gy. I will watch the oth­er large room sem­i­nars in the next few days. This means I will attend sev­en pre­sen­ta­tions, which is about the same num­ber I usu­al­ly attend­ed in two days at pri­or Migrations.
