Know Yourself, Know your Plane Safety Seminar, New York

June 16, 2018, Boonville Airfield, Boonville, New York

This safety seminar will take place at Boonville Inc. Airport (1NK7) in New York. The focus will be calculation of aircraft performance considering field/wx conditions, followed by flying opportunity on marked out runway.

The morning segment will be ground instruction, with all participating pilots estimating their takeoff roll, distance to clear a 50' obstacle, landing roll out and total landing distance from threshold based on their POH or equivalent and the field and weather conditions of the day.  This will also take into account the age of their engine/airframe and their experience and currency on grass airfields. Topics to be covered include calculating density altitude, using performance charts to calculate takeoff and landing distances under specific conditions on specific surfaces, and understanding how our airplanes are flown by us may differ from a factory new plane flown by a test pilot. The afternoon segment will be the actual flying.  The field will be marked out with labelled cones at 50’ intervals, and spotters will record distances for the pilots to compare to their best estimates.
