Wednesday, February 19, 2014 - Personal Locators - A Life Saver

Emergency Locator Transmitters (ELTs) provide a means to achieve regulatory compliance. With the advent of consumer-focused satellite technology, a variety of manufacturers have "find me" technologies which can augment ELTs. Delivering a secondary and resilient technology solution, these small devices can provide the pilot, their family and friends with peace of mind. With alerting and tracking capabilities, these pocket-sized dynamos provide additional capabilities which can enhance our safety while providing real-time information to people on the ground. Phil Lightstone (from the Buttonville Flying Club) will examine the available technologies and their practical applications. In addition, Stephanie Rankine (of SmartPilot.ca) will showcase her organization’s website, focussing on some of the safety-related information, videos and interactive courses available there.

Wednesday, April 16, 2014 - Annual Return to Flying on Floats

Come out for an educational and informative evening exploring the water-flying world where water-soaked floats and hulls are treated as standard operating procedure. Transport Canada’s Paul Baldasaro will speak about some of the safety issues related to floatplane and seaplane operations in the water-flying world, providing valuable information and reminders for both general aviation pilots and commercial pilots. James (Jim) Duggan (an aviation lawyer) will speak on various aspects of aviation law as they relate to the floatplane world. Stephanie Rankine (of SmartPilot.ca) will showcase her organization’s website, focussing on the various safety-related float-flying information, videos and interactive courses available there. 

Wednesday, May 21, 2014 - Aging Aircraft Issues for Owners and Aircraft Maintenance Engineers (AMEs)

Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum (Dome Auditorium) , Hamilton (Mount Hope), ON (fly in to CYHM, weather-permitting)

With many General Aviation aircraft built over 30 years ago, AMEs and aircraft owners must consider the aircraft’s maintenance program needs outside of the annual inspection.  Wayne Juniper, of the Aircraft Maintenance Engineers Association of Ontario, will explain how the aircraft’s maintenance program should be given special consideration at future inspections as it relates to aging aircraft issues.

Our future Monthly Aviation Safety Seminar dates include:

  • Wednesday, September 17, 2014
  • Wednesday, October 15, 2014
  • Wednesday, November 19, 2014
