As usual, our meeting takes place on Tuesday evening, April 25. at 6:30 PM at the Balloon Museum.
While the museum is still closed, the opening in the fence is closer to the main door this month. You’ll be able to enter the museum thru that opening and the front door of the building.
The Safety Corner returns this month, with a very important message about thermals and a caring ballooning community. Beth Wright-Smith, DPE and FAAST (FAA Safety Team) member will be discussing:
Rules-of-Thumb when flying in warmer temperatures
Pilot Decision Making: pressure to fly and Go/No-Go decisions
Traits of a learning community
At a future date, we’ll have the pilot of the Easter situation share the FACTS about the event and his key learnings. In the meantime, it is useful for us all to keep in mind that speculation and conjecture are frequently incorrect and that condemning individuals who make mistakes is not a key trait of a learning community. Seeking to understand and learning from the facts are.
The program for the month will be Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) in the National Airspace System (NAS). The presenters, Steven Hebert and Les Wallace, are part of the Aviation Safety division at Sandia National Laboratories. It should be a good one!
And this is the first meeting with the new Board of Directors. Come to the meeting in person to get to know the new team!
