New Safety Website From Warbirds of America
EAA Warbirds of America is always looking for ways to keep warbirds flying safely. The March issue of Warbirds magazine is dedicated to sharing information about their safe operation. Safety is not a once-a-year challenge; it is an attitude and culture that should be applied to every flight. Warbirds of America has developed a new website - www.warbirdsafety.com - to share best operating practices with warbird operators. Warbirds of America has been working with the International Council of Air Shows (ICAS) to collect and distribute a list of "best practices" that apply to warbird operators, ground crews, and events.
Currently the site has "Pilot" and "Aircraft" pages. We intend to expand to additional pages as needs warrant. Best practices are meant to be fairly short, 500-word articles that can be reviewed by any warbird operator. Membership in EAA Warbirds of America is not required but certainly encouraged so we can support this effort to keep 'em flying safely. The new website also has a direct link to join or renew your membership in EAA Warbirds of America.
We are soliciting input from owners and operators of warbird aircraft by encouraging the submission of articles for consideration. Your articles should be approximately 500 words as a recommendation. There will be sufficient space to cover the subject matter. These articles will become archived on the site and available for review by current or new warbird enthusiasts. Soon we will be expanding the site to include ground safety and flight operations.
Please take the time to review the website. Although it is in its infancy, we expect content on the site to increase rapidly as we get more information from the warbird community.
We are all responsible for the safe operation of these national treasures we call warbirds. Please take the time to review the website and consider submitting articles to be shared by the community. You can make submissions via the site's "Contact Us" button, or send your article directly to firstname.lastname@example.org. We're all responsible for safety, so let's continue to work toward continually improving the safety record of warbird aircraft.
