Strut Meeting - GASCo Safety Evening
Aim is to get pilots, no matter how long they have been flying or what aircraft type they fly, to STOP and THINK about how they can make their future flying a bit safer, for themselves and others. This presentation should be highly informative, balancing serious safety messages with lively audience participation.
All Welcome. Open to non-Strut members and anyone with an interest in safety.
