    Aerobatic Safety Considerations

    1930 - 2100Kyneton Airfield - 1503 Kyneton-Metcalfe Road Kyneton VIC 3444

    The introduction of Pt61 has increased the requirements for underpinning knowledge, not just demonstrated skills, in a number of areas; including Aerobatic Endorsements. Many Pilots achieved their Aerobatic training prior to the formal requirement for underpinning knowledge being introduced and perhaps with little or no theory component. With 40% of the Aircraft based at Kyneton Airfield being capable of Aerobatics this highlights the need to revisit this aspect and to discuss issues such as aerodynamics, structural loads, and human factors/physiology as they apply to the Pilot and Airplane conducting Aerobatics.

    As usual, guests are most welcome, the session will be presented by KAC President, Warren Canning, and will follow the General Meeting and conclude with Supper.
