    A CABA EDUCATIONAL SERIES Presentation



    In Partnership with Advanced Aircrew Academy


    "What They Didn't Teach You in Ground School"


    Erika Armstrong,

    Director of Instructional Design





    Monday, April 1, 2019

    07:30 - 08:30 AM


    Wright Brothers Room,

    In the base of the Centennial Airport Control Tower

    7800 S Peoria St, Englewood, CO  80112


    Coffee and donuts will be provided!


    There is no cost to attend,

    but please RSVP to enable an accurate head count.


    Attend a short educational session to further your business aviation acumen. Come discuss aspects of client satisfaction, how business leaders can pressure the flight department, and why empty leg flights can be just as dangerous as the main mission flights. This session will use case studies to highlight decision points for the business aviation professional.


    Abstract:

    Pilots travel through flight training accomplishing benchmark goals, hours and ratings which represent a new level of skill. Safety is preached and practiced, but what are the variables that continue to plague business aviation accidents and incident reports? It’s not something they teach you in ground school, and it isn’t listed on the NTSB report, but is a direct cause of a thought pattern that gets pilots into trouble.

    The world outside aviation doesn’t realize all the nuances of being a corporate or charter pilot. The job requirements of a pilot go beyond flying a machine. Not only is it about learning complex machinery in complex airspace, it’s about pleasing clients to please employers. It often puts pilots in interpersonal situations beyond the call of duty.

    This presentation covers the “CEO 15%” which attributes to runway excursions, the empty leg factor, unique passenger challenges, and why the safety of an entire flight department can be influenced by one person.

    The session will use case study examples and real incidents where safety was jeopardized for passenger comfort. This presentation will arm pilots with skills to offset potentially hazardous situations unique to business aviation."

    Leading an aviation team or department presents challenges that many other leaders do not face. Your clients and customers rely on you not only for good service, but also for their safety. There is often little or no room for error which demands effective leadership at all levels.

    The Daedalus Group is pleased to partner with the Colorado Aviation Business Association to bring the 3-day Rocky Mountain Aviation Leadership Workshop to Centennial, Colorado. This is an intensive exploration of proven techniques for better leadership in aviation. Designed specifically for aviation professionals, it is an opportunity for supervisors and managers in the aviation business to learn the skills and techniques that will make them more effective in this demanding environment.

    The workshop will present Planning to Excel™ and Leadership for Aviation Professionals™. These programs are certified by the National Business Aviation Association to satisfy all Professional Development Program (PDP) Leadership Objectives (L1 – L5).

    Whether you hold the CAM credential and require PDP credits, are working toward certification, or just want to learn how to be an effective leader in the aviation business, this workshop will provide the skills to make you a more effective leader.

    The first day of the workshop, April 29, 2019 will explore Planning to Excel™ (PDP Objectives L1 and L2). This program takes a deep dive into planning and goal setting using a unique model to make the planning process logical, understandable, and easy to implement. Participants will:
