Fitchburg Pilots Association EAA Chapter 1454 Monthly via ZOOM

Location visible to members

Join FPA for a short business meeting and a different speaker each month. This month’s topic: Real World Oxygen for Aviators – from Student Pilots to ATPs The use of supplemental oxygen in the cockpit is generally not discussed in flight training except for the memorization of FAR Part[masked]. Oxygen usage is generally associated with high performance, turbocharged aircraft flying in the mid-teens to flight levels. Because of this, for most general aviation pilots the use of oxygen can be mysterious. But pilot know the stories of hypoxia, the loss of consciousness and how insidious the effects of oxygen deprivation can be, either from accident reports or experiencing the effects of hypoxia in a controlled environment like the FAA PROTE. This seminar will review the use of supplemental oxygen, some of the physiological aspects of hypoxia, how to detect it in flight, and why supplemental oxygen use can enhance safety by increasing awareness, reducing fatigue, and eliminating that “wiped out” feeling you might get after a flight. This seminar will be of interest to all aviators, and is presented by CFII and glider pilot Scott Ashton, and Byron Peters, both of Aerox. This will be a virtual meeting!
