Cool video from Aviation101’s channel on how to use shorthand when writing down ATC instructions.
On Monday May 28, a local Girl Guides unit attended the AFC to earn their Aeronautics Badge. Jeannette from Principal Air and Michelle from Abbotsford tower (Nav Canada) generously helped with presentations on airplanes and air traffic control respectively.
The girls started with a ground school session at the clubhouse and then went to the tower for a tour of their operations. They finished up the evening in the club hangar with an inspection of the club’s aircraft.
Thanks very much to Jeannette and Michelle for helping to make the evening a success.
A good article from Plane & Pilot Magazine on how to deal with task overload (i.e. helmet fires) when acting as PIC.
