The Aero Club of New England (ACONE), the oldest aero club in the Americas, will hold its annual Crash Course Wednesday, March 9, in Bedford, Mass. Admission is free.
The seminar will feature true-life experiences from pilots who learned from their mistakes and lived to tell about them. Stories such as losing a prop in-flight, surviving a crash in Oregon and what happens when you lose control going VFR into IFR will be discussed.
Lead speaker will be Bruce Landsberg, president of the AOPA Foundation, who will also include a 45-minute review of local accidents.
A Social Hour and Sponsor Exhibits will take place from 6 p.m.–6:45 p.m. with the program starting immediately after.
This seminar qualifies towards the FAA Wings program, and FAA Safety Counselors will be on hand to sign Wings forms.
ACONE, a non-profit organization, the AOPA Air Safety Foundation, AOPA Membership Publications, Inc., and the FAA Aviation Safety Program are the primary sponsors of the event.
