October General meeting

October 5, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

General Meeting at the Club House on Tuesday, Oct 5th.

 

Come early (6pm) for a burger BBQ (beef and veggie) and the usual accompaniments, plus soft drinks, water, coffee and beer ($1 extra) , followed by the general meeting at 7 pm. Come and swap stories with your fellow club members for an enjoyable evening. Cost for the meal is $9.

 

COVID 19 restrictions include the wearing of masks if you are in the Club House (other than when consuming food).

 

Club member Colin Bechtel, who recently spoke to club members about maintaining a watch on Guard Frequencies including 121.5, will speak to us on missed approaches. VFR and IFR missed approaches involve one of the most difficult transitions to make, especially for general aviation single pilot operation. A “landing” mindset has to be replaced with “take off” mindset and procedures close to the ground, possibly in IFR conditions. Colin, a retired airline pilot, will share with us his experiences both from real life and airline training and outline how the ‘pros’ deal with it.
