Michael Lessard, CFII/MEI

We all know that approaches and landings are critical, so we practice them often. But what about takeoff and departure? Data suggests this is the other critical phase of flight, yet most of us give takeoffs and departures less thought than our landings. Join us to learn why mishaps on takeoff are more dangerous than mishaps on landings, and to explore some awesome ideas and techniques to identify potential hazards and make this phase of flight the safest it can be. This is a comprehensive webinar that explores all aspects from preflight to arrival at your en route altitude. We will also present a great presentation on "The Impossible Turn". You are sure to walk away from this important learning opportunity with a fresh perspective on your flying!
