Spring Flying - Dust off the Rust!
Spring has officially arrived and it's time to "Dust off the Rust!". This is a call to all pilots - whether you are new to flying, or a seasoned pilot, to join our panel of experts as they offer professional advice on the most important things to keep in mind before flying an aircraft, as Spring has sprung.

Three familiar faces to the Safety First Aviator Webinar Series will be sharing valuable information and insights. Caroline Koll, owner of The Essential Pilot, will look at what you should do to get back into the spring of things - that is if you haven't flown in a while. The Pre-Flight Check will be the main focus for Cobus Toerien representing ALPA-SA. He will be sharing tips on Pre-Flight Springtime checks, whether you own an aircraft or hire one - especially important when new seasons with different weather patterns approach. Santjie White, our resident ICAO SAR Expert will guide you on when to ask for help, and where to get it.
