Flying in the Wire and Obstruction Environment Course

February 29, 2024 13:01 | Anonymous

The North Dakota Aviation Association (NDAA), along with other Tri-State Agricultural Aviation members, is hosting a Flying in the Wire and Obstruction Environment Course. This course is acclaimed by professional airplane and helicopter operators world-wide and will be held on Wednesday, March 13, 2024, at the Holiday Inn in Fargo, ND.

This course will be a full-day, eight-hour course. The instructors give low-altitude aviators the essential skills needed to safely operate an aircraft in wire and obstruction environments. This course is for both airplane and helicopter pilots that are working in the wire environment. Learn how to identify signs of wires and why ag aviators hit wires they already knew were there. This course may very well save your life – wire strike accidents continue to harm the ag aviation industry. Nationally in 2022, there were eleven wire strike accidents, one of which was fatal. In the 2023 season, there were 16 wire strike accidents, 7 of which were fatal. 

 This training will be free to attend. The course will be taught by Utilities / Aviation Specialists Inc. (UAS), a unique group of aviation safety practitioners who provide safety auditing, specialized training, installation of safety management systems, and technical aviation consulting. They provide mission-specific expertise in specialized applications which require skill sets above those found in most routine transport operations.
