On 27 March 2013, the Air Safety Institute, in association with the Aircraft Owner's and Pilots Association, hosted another free safety seminar. The topic was called Chart Challenge: Live! and was designed to get both VFR and IFR rated pilots thinking about charting symbology and flight planning. In this increasingly GPS and digitally-dominated world, it is far too easy to simply plan a direct route. After all... the shortest distance is a straight line, right? But what about obstructions, airspace, minimum altitudes, and other traffic?
A dozen member-pilots of the Columbus Senior Squadron, Group VIII, and even Ohio Wing staff were in attendance to represent CAP. For those who were unfortunate enough to miss out on this free seminar, the authors present a couple hidden links you can visit to peruse the content at your leisure.
