April General Meeting: Real Life Emergency - How would you react?

Speaker: Shane Lipson
Date & Time: Thursday April 7, 2011 @ 7:30pm
Location: NJ Aviation Hall of Fame and Museum at Teterboro

This month's general meeting will feature our very own Shane Lipson.  His presentation will be on "real life" emergencies.

We all read articles about pilots who had to deal with emergencies.  We often ask ourselves, what would we actually do confronted with a similar situation.  Unfortunately, these stories are usually 'distant' to ourselves, involving people we don't know and lots of theory and conjecture.

4 years ago, in our very own N4468N, Shane faced one of those situations.  IMC going below minimums, electrical failures, and guest passengers aboard ... all while trying to fly in the famed Washington DC ADIZ.  Fortunately Shane had a positive outcome.

Shane has obtained the actual ATC tapes, flight tracks, etc, and has a presentation that re-creates the actual scenario and decision points that allow you to participate with "what would you do" at each step of the way.

For those who haven't seen it before, it gives a much more personal encounter with an actual emergency, and let's you ask the question of "what would you *actually* do."

The meeting is open to the public. As an added bonus, the NJ Aviation Hall of Fame and Museum will extend free admissions to members and guests starting at 7:00pm. Refreshments will be served at 7:30pm, and the meeting will begin promptly at 8:00pm.
