X Marks the Failure

On Wednesday, April 27, 2016, Gentry Shelton, Commercial Pilot, CFII, MEI,  High Performance Aviation,  will present an FAA Safety Team talk on identifying and troubleshooting pitot-static failures. Modern technology has made our cockpits more advanced. In this seminar, Gentry will discuss how to deal with failures in technically advanced aircraft. This seminar is a good review of the systems involved when the red X’s appear on highly sophisticated equipment. Additionally this seminar is a good review on which instruments give pertinent information, how they get their input and what it means when the information given doesn’t make sense.

This Fly-In Seminar is located at Anson Aviation, Sugar Land Regional Airport and is sponsored by the SGR FAASTeam. Anson Aviation is located south of the Sugar Land Regional Airport main Terminal Building. Participants are eligible for WINGS credit. Register online for this seminar.
