    AOPA Safety Institute Presents Peaks to Pavement: Applying Lessons from the Backcountry

    Join us at Smith Field Airport (SMD) from 6-9 PM  for this free event from AOPA featuring decorated speaker Tom Curran. Prior to the seminar we will have a cookout and demo flights in an Aviat Husky.

    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.

    More information can be found here, or you can contact us at (260) 267-5505.
