Registration Still Open for Alaska Wire Flying Course

Registration is still open for the acclaimed Crew Resource Management and Flying in the Wire and Obstruction Environment course that will be presented in Anchorage, Alaska on Aug. 28.

Presented by Utilities Aviation Specialists, this one-day multimedia seminar gives low-level flight crews the essential skills they need to safely operate an aircraft in wire and obstruction environments. Topics covered include how to identify the hazards associated with wire and obstruction accidents, crew resource management during low-level operations, and how to forecast the presence of wire. It is geared not only toward pilots, but also toward crewmembers such as line workers and tactical flight officers. It emphasizes the importance of acting as a team in the wire and obstruction environment, and the responsibilities of each crewmember during low-level flight operations.
The Anchorage course is being sponsored by the Alaska State Troopers and is scheduled for 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 28 at the BP Energy Center, 900 E. Benson Blvd. Registration is open to the general public. Individuals can attend the course for $400 per person, and discounts are offered for larger groups. The fee includes the training session, associated manual, graduation certificate and lunch.

We have not raised the pricing for about the fifth year in a row, remarked Lynette Sims, General Manager of Utilities Aviation Specialists. We want this invaluable training to be affordable for all crew not just pilots to attend.
