Raise the Bar of Your Safety Culture with Challenging Training
11:30 AM - 12:45 PM
Location: Forum Stage 6
Presenter: Patty Wagstaff
All pilots need ongoing training, both recurrent and additional, to stay challenged, focused and sharp. When faced with an unusual attitude, too often pilots are unable to cope with a situation which they have rarely or never faced. Wagstaff will explain the differences between upset training and aerobatics and give suggestions as to what to look for when seeking this kind of training.
Patty Wagstaff is an American aerobatic national champion aviator. She earned the Rolly Cole Memorial Award for her contributions to aerobatic sports, and in 1991, she won her first of three US National Aerobatic Championships, becoming the first woman to win that competition. She continues working in the aviation field as an airshow pilot, stunt pilot for films, consultant, and flight instructor of upset recovery and aerobatic training.
