Washington Pilots Association Spokane Chapter 

This Month’s Meeting

On September 19 our program at Darcy’s will be provided by the Dan Arch the Chief Pilot at the Northwest Flight Center which, in addition to providing local flight instruction, is also a Certified Cirrus Center.  Dan Arch recently had a personal experience with the Cirrus CAPS system. He was in the process of checking out a new Cirrus pilot in the gentleman’s airplane and they suffered an engine failure at an altitude that allowed them some time to prepare for an off field landing but with few options decided the best course of action was to use the CAPS system. They did and were successful!! Dan has prepared a presentation of this event and will be our program at Darcy’s on September 19th.  FAA WINGS credit is available.
