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 - Flying in the backcountry is an exciting and rewarding challenge with little room for error. It's an exacting environment that demands sound decision making, stellar stick and rudder skills, a thorough understanding of the weather, and an intimate knowledge of the airplane. Whether you're a seasoned backcountry flyer or flatlander, you'll enjoy this new seminar, which delves into conditions, challenges, and accidents unique to backcountry flying. Together with your seminar leader you'll examine lessons learned to fly safely in any operating environment. Presenter Christine Mortine is a Designated Pilot Examiner, active CFI/II and conducts FIRCs and Safety Seminars for AOPA. 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.
