GASCo Pathfinder Seminar - Safety Implications in the use of Electronic Flight Planning Aids and Modern Cockpit Technology with practical Flight Simulator Session at The University of Sheffield on Wednesday 11th April 2012

The use of electronic flight planning aids and modern cockpit technology is becoming widespread in General Aviation. There are safety implications and benefits to be derived as a result. GASCo is developing a seminar to look into these aspects and will be holding a pathfinder event on 11th April 2012 at the University of Sheffield. The University has kindly agreed to host the event and has made available its research simulator for the day. This non-motion based simulator has an excellent visual system, and includes flight models for the C172, PA28, Beech Baron together with other larger and/or high performance aircraft. The seminar on 11th April will include briefings, discussions and a simulator session for all delegates which will look at EFIS displays and the use of iPads in the cockpit among other things. There will also be a generic aircraft performance session in the simulator. After the event, Professor David Allerton has kindly agreed to stay on and let those that wish use the Boeing 747 flight model and try a landing at Chep Lap Kok International Airport.

There are only a few places available for this seminar and there is expected to be a great demand so, if you would like to join us, please register as soon as possible. There will be a reserve list in operation. The price is 25 and will include lunch. Parking is not available on the campus but there is a multi-storey car park very close to the Amy Johnson building which delegates can use. The day is expected to run from 11:00 16:30 hours.
