Getting back to Flying during the Covid-19 pandemic: From "IMC to VFR”. Are you ready?
Following on the webinar hosted on 25 February 2021, join AERO South Africa and the Safety First Aviator team, as we give guidance to pilots on getting back to flying safely, focusing on resilience with the 2020/2021 campaign of "Prop Clear".
Covid-19 is not going to disappear in the near future, so pilots have started looking at ways to get their engines running again, BUT they need to ensure their safety when taking flight:
From ‘IMC to VFR'
Eventually some of us have been lucky to transition back into flying. After a few months of lockdown and no flying, how do we get 'back into the saddle' - safely and efficiently?
• Did we maintain our currency / recency / comfort levels?
• How do we overcome the 'Rusty Pilot' syndrome?
• Aviators and Checklists are like Birds and Air! Now that we are ready for flight, what do we have to guide us from 'IMC into VFR' following months of being grounded?
• Do we have any checklists for this unique situation? In fact, yes we do, but do you have it?
Join us for this informative webinar where our speakers Cobus Toerien (ALPA-SA), Santjie White (South African Search and Rescue), Lauren Smith (South African Weather Service) and Ari Levien (MayDay-SA) continue the discussion and delve into challenges and solutions to give pilots guidance on the elements of moving from bad conditions to better conditions, weathering the storm we find ourselves in. The webinar will be moderated by Franz Smit from Pilot Insure.
