Safety Seminar at Princeton Airport

Pilots throughout the region are invited to a free Safety

Seminar on Wednesday, October 30, at 7 p.m. sponsored by Princeton

Airport at its newly expanded facility on Route 206, three-and-a-half

miles north on Princeton. Call 609-921-3100 or visit www.princetonairport.com

Scott Smith, a representative of Garmin International, presents

an interactive program showing the latest features available to pilots

to improve their navigational procedures. GPS is a satellite-based

navigation system made up of a network of 24 satellites placed into

orbit by the U.S. Department of Defense. The first units were very

costly, but with modern technology, these units are now available

to most pilots and are extremely accurate because of multi-channel

design.

Representatives of the David Clark Company will display the wide variety

of headsets available to pilots. Also on display: two new American

Champion aircraft, a Super Decathlon and an Explorer. Attendance at

the seminar counts toward the FAA Pilot Proficiency Program, where

pilots are encouraged to receive three hours of recurrent training

and attend a safety seminar to earn a set of wings and a certificate.
