Doug Ritter's AOPA Expo Seminars Could Save Your Life
authority Doug Ritter will present three seminars at AOPA Expo this
year in Palm Springs, CA.
During the seminars, you'll have a chance to win over $4,400
worth of the very best survival gear as door prizes. You can learn
how to survive and maybe win the gear to help you do it.
On Friday, November 10, you can attend his acclaimed two-part
Ditching and Water Survival seminar. Part I starts at 11am in
Smoketree rooms A-E at the convention center. You'll learn
techniques to safely ditch your aircraft and survive. Get there
early, last year the fire marshal closed the doors and Ritter had
to turn away attendees.
Part II begins at 3pm in the Wyndham Hotel Pool immediately
adjacent to the Convention Center. He will demonstrate life rafts,
life vests, survival exposure suits, signaling gear and much more
-- right in the pool!
Ritter says he still has room for a limited number of
volunteers (adults only, please) to participate in the
demonstration. This is a rare opportunity to gain some first hand
experience with this water survival gear.
On Saturday, November 11, Doug will present "Equipping Yourself
to Survive: Survival Gear for Pilots" at 11am in the Pasadena
When your flight has gone about as bad as it possibly can, your
survival may well depend upon the survival gear you have with you.
Even with modern communications and distress signaling, you could
easily end up stuck in the wilderness overnight.
If rescue is delayed, it's probably because of difficult weather
or other circumstances that would add to your troubles.
Doug will explain what gear you should never be without and,
just as important, what gear is worth betting your life on and what
isn't. Doug says you don't have to spend a fortune to be equipped
