MELBOURNE, FLA.—Florida Institute of Technology’s aviation training arm, FIT Aviation, and the College of Aeronautics welcome all area pilots to an FAA
Safety Team event on Sept. 18, starting at 2 p.m. The event will be held in the university’s Buehler Center for Aviation Training and Research at the
Melbourne International Airport.
The FAA Safety Team from Orlando will conduct a seminar titled, “Conducting Safe Takeoffs and Landings,” which is open to all pilots in the Central Florida
area. The presentation is part of the FAA’s WINGS, a pilot proficiency program designed to help each pilot construct an educational curriculum tailored to
unique flight requirements.
“The most significant benefit to participating pilots is the added level of safety and professionalism to be obtained by adopting a consistent training
program,” said Stephen Cusick, Florida Tech associate professor of aeronautics.
The seminar will provide many useful ideas and tips to prevent accidents at takeoffs and landings. A Q&A period will follow. The program is free;
advance registration is not required. Participants will be able to enroll in the WINGS safety program at the site.
