MAY 11-"ATC BILL” HILL, “HOW WELL DO YOU REALLY KNOW YOUR AIRPLANE?”

Continuing with our series of proficiency presentations for the Spring and early Summer, our May 11 GFCA breakfast speaker will be “ATP Bill” Hill, a 40+ year CFII in Northern California, safety counselor (before there was FAAST), and a strong advocate for PIC responsibility. Many of you will remember Bill’s last presentation to GFCA back in December, 2016 on using common sense in your flying.

This time Bill will come down from Red Bluff to ask just how well you know your airplane. No, not just the POH and Owner’s Manual information, but the plane’s maintenance and registration history, who did what to the airplane, accident history and aftermath, how was the plane really used (we’ve all seen the line “never a trainer”), and the things you need to understand in order to really know your airplane. Bill will demonstrate using one of our member’s planes as an example. This will be a deep dive into the subject, so mark your calendars now; 9:00 a.m. in the Scanlon Aviation hangar at Gnoss Field.

April 13-Jordan Haines, Oakland Center controller
