Alan Davis (left) and Cliff Chetwin, both Society of Aviation and Flight Educators (SAFE) directors, proudly wear pieces of the framework of their tent from 2011. Davis calls them “SAFEty Amulets.” Davis and Chetwin were in the SAFE tent when last year’s tornado hit. “Cliff and I were hanging onto the crossbar when the tornado hit,” said Davis. “The tent, along with the two of us, were lifted about 3 feet off the ground... twice. The third time we were lifted, we let go about 5 feet in the air. The tent blew two spaces away.” SAFE’s new tent is in the Northeast exhibit area, Space 6.

Jepp offers training solutions
Jeppesen now offers complete, customizable training solutions for flight schools, instructors and students, officials reported this week at SUN ’n FUN. The complete Jeppesen program offers flight training courses and business management functions designed to increase training efficiency, company officials said. Working to improve student pilot retention rates from sport to commercial aviation and to address an expected future pilot shortage, the training solutions are available for flight schools, universities and CFIs. Web-based delivery of enhanced courses include Jeppesen Sport Pilot Online, Private Pilot Online, Instrument Pilot Online and Commercial Pilot Online. The web-based training courses allow student pilots to work according to their own schedules and offer realistic scenarios and multi-media learning strategies. Recently introduced training products from Jeppesen have bolstered complete training solutions offered for student pilots. These elements include the Jeppesen Aircraft Total Training solution suite for intensive learning of specific aircraft models and the development of companion guides used to supplement course materials. The Jeppesen SkyManager system provides flight training operators with business management resources such as online scheduling, professional accounting, maintenance tracking, real-time dispatching, and more. Complete training solutions offered by Jeppesen also eliminate the need for flight training organizations to draw upon multiple resources for training materials, as bundled, customized curriculum and student-purchased elements are offered directly from a single provider, company officials said, noting Jeppesen provides pilot supplies, test preparation materials, e-learning programs, training program syllabus guidelines and IFR and VFR charts. Find out more at Jeppesen’s exhibit in Hangar C, Spaces 17-21, or at Jeppesen. com.

If you’ve lost something, be sure to head to the Lost & Found, which is directly across from the Main Gate in the Volunteer Center. “We just returned a pair of prescription bifocal glasses that were lost two years ago,” a volunteer reports. “And a little boy lost his wallet with a Spider-Man on it. You should have seen his face when he found it and saw all his money was still there!” If you’ve found any items, you can drop them off at Lost & Found and the volunteers will do what they can to get it back to its rightful owner.
