Presented by Bret Koebbe and Eric Radtke of Sporty's - It's been 10 years since the first iPad was introduced and its advanced capabilities have transformed how pilots manage data in the cockpit. Its role has evolved from digital chart viewer to that of a digital copilot, providing pilots with contextual information before and during a flight, calling out abnormalities or deviations, and assisting with duties during high workload phases of flight. Learn how to take advantage of these features using the ForeFlight and Garmin Pilot apps, to help better prepare you for each flight and make your flying safer.
Presented by Christine Mortine, AOPA - Man-made obstacles, mountains, and other aircraft are just some of the things we don’t want to see close-up in flight. Learn more about the gotchas that could ruin your day and how to avoid running into objectionable objects. Presenter Christine Mortine is a Designated Pilot Examiner, active CFI/II and presenter for AOPA ASI. Her home base is KOSU where she hangars her C185, when not flying it out west, and offers tailwheel endorsements in her C140. Christine is the Ohio Liaison for The Recreational Aviation Foundation.
