At our August meeting, David, our Unit Leader, emphasized the importance of safety. David showed us the National Transportation Safety Board Aviation Preliminary Report about the Bluebonnet Belle. Many of you can recall that this aircraft was instrumental in assisting Cajun Airlift in delivering goods to victims of Hurricane Harvey (pic can be found under Service section on website) You may read the Transportation Safety report here: CAF Safety Bulletin #6A
At this meeting, members had the opportunity to sign up for ground school training that Jim Helms will be putting on Wednesday (August 22)afternoon and Saturday (August 25)morning. Each of these trainings will review marshalling and other safety issues. These classes are full; but, there will be more. Everyone involved will need these trainings.
Since then, all units have received a mandatory video for pilots. Please read!
