October 26, 2016 (4th Wednesday):Topic: IMC Flight Illusions: Understanding & Awareness
Visual illusions can be an insidious and dangerous to VFR and IFR pilots. Failing prey to such illusions can induce vertigo, disorientation, and, if not properly addressed, loss of control of the airplane. If failure to recognize and counteract illusions occurs close to the ground, in mountainous terrain, or over water, the results can be catastrophic.
Dr. Mike Stretanski, CFII and AME, will conduct a presentation and discussion on "IMC Flight Illusions: Understanding & Awareness.” Emphasis will be placed on how to understand, detect, and respond to a host of aviation-related illusions. Subsequent to his presentation, an interactive exercise will follow.
Dr. Stretanski is affiliated with the Interventional Spine &Pain Rehabilitation Center, and is Board Certified in Rehabilitation Medicine, Electro physiology (EMG/NCS), Pain Management, Disability Evaluation, and Anti-Aging and Regenerative Medicine. Dr. Stretanski is also an AME and holds a CFII certificate. He flies regularly in the central Ohio area and beyond.
As a reminder, can you please come prepared to respond to the following questions? We will use an electronic, confidential medium to assess our membership.
