    eh, figure since I'll already be there, might as well check this out on sunday after breakfast:


    "September Safety Topic of the Month - Stablized Approach and Go Around"

    Topic: The outreach will emphasize the best practices regarding stabilized approaches and go around techniques.
    On Sunday, September 16, 2018 at 11:00 Eastern Daylight Time
    Location:
    The Curtiss-Wright Hangar
    1402 Jim Hamilton Blvd
    The Curtiss-Wright Hangar
    Columbia, SC 29205
    Select Number:
    SO1385228

    Description:

    The air carrier industry has embraced stabilized approach concepts as a means to ensure safe operations during critical phases of flight. Airline flight crews are trained and tested on establishing and maintaining stabilized approaches and to immediately initiate a go around if stabilized approach criteria are not met. This has led to a dramatic decrease in approach and landing mishaps. General aviation pilots can also increase the safety of their approach and landing operations by adhering to stabilized approach criteria. At this outreach, we will discuss:

    • the magnitude of approach and landing mishaps
    • the benefits of stabilized approach and landing operations.
    • and best practices for exercising the go around option.
    We will also encourage pilots to make stabilized approaches and to go around if stabilized approach criteria are not met.

    What time are peeps arriving? I'm thinking of going, but just for the day. Lunch? Dinner? Both and then late night drinking?

    I'm signed up for a 5K that morning, but that's at 7:30 am, so not a problem for even being there before lunch. There's also an Angel Flight mission to Savannah; haven't signed up for it yet.

    So, looking at options.

    dunno what time yet, I'd guess in the 3-5pm range. certainly before the TFR kicks in which I think will be around an hour before gametime.

    I did Airbnb, the place is about 1.5 miles from KCUB.

    I’m heading to Triple Tree this morning, I’m the guy with the khaki hat and blonde 6yo daughter. Probably do some fishing.

    Edit 9/10/18 - it was a lot of fun, but SUPER hot the whole time. We saw a lot of awesome planes. Also we caught a lot of fish.

    less than one week until the washout, uh, hurricane, I mean the KCUB brew-n-breakfastfest. I told my Airbnb I'd make the call on Wednesday, even though I technically have until Thursday.

    Are we ready to call it yet? I kind of feel like the right thing to do is free up my hotel room for someone fleeing the coast.

    Ive heard of "beer goggles," but what's a "beer back?" Maybe it's a good thing this trip was postponed . . . .

    So, anyone want to reschedule for the next hurricane? I might be back on line by then.
