I don't know who signed online to Gene Benson's "LIVE WEBINAR: Keeping the Dirty Side Down - Avoiding Surprises While Maneuvering!"
Topic: Avoiding Maneuvering Flight Accidents.
It was held Wednesday evening and it really takes the safety seminar to another level of presentation. As a matter of fact, Gene paid for the expenses of this particular presentation. According to him, there were 371 attendees. That's pretty good. He has a webinar tomorrow, Monday, February 8th at 8:00PM (EST). Why Did They Do That? Human Factors in VFR Accidents (Volume #3: Landing Accidents) There is a $2.00 charge but I think that's a reasonable charge for invaluable information these seminars provide. The one he held last Wednesday had a lot of interesting points regarding maneuvering accidents.
Check out his website http://www.genebenson.com for more stuff and information.
Holding a webinar is a good way to get the message out to more people. Yes, it's nice to drive to attend a seminar and enjoy the camaraderie of your fellow pilots; however, it's a challenge to get off work early enough to get there in time to enjoy the popcorn and presentation.
Attending the webinar was pretty easy. Plus, others can sit alongside you and watch the festivities as well. Almost like attending a local Super Bowl party.
So, for those of you who are not signed up to the Wings Program, haven't you been waiting long enough? It's a good way to keep current with flying safety, as well as help keep costs of aircraft insurance down.
If you didn't get notification of the webinar, you're probably asking "How do I get notified of upcoming events and seminars?" The best way is, if you don't have an account on http://www.faasafety.gov/ by all means, register. Once you log into your account, click on the "My Preferences" link at the top of the home page in the light blue banner. The first tab on this page will be "General and Email Settings." Here you can enter a zip code and change your email preferences. That way you will receive emails of upcoming events for your area.
It's as simple as that.
