Founder's Innovation Prize Grand Championship Preview Now Open for Registration
September 17, 2020 – Although the Founder's Innovation Prize Grand Championship was pushed back to 2021 due to COVID-19, 2020 will still feature some of EAA's most innovative members' solutions to reduce the number of fatal amateur-built accidents caused by loss of control. The virtual Founder's Innovation Prize Grand Championship Preview on Wednesday, September 23, will revisit some of the strongest entries from the past four years, and give you a glimpse into next year's Founder's Innovation Prize Grand Championship as presentations from several participants will be featured.
Additionally, on Tuesday, September 22, So You Think You Can Make a 180 Back on Takeoff? An In-Depth Look at Engine Failure Options, an insightful presentation on the 180 turn back after an engine failure on takeoff, will premier. Test pilots and EAA safety committee members Charlie Precourt, Chris Glaeser, and Terry Lutz will provide instruction on the use of the EAA Flight Test Manual test cards for climb and glide that will enable you to determine your own aircraft's capabilities should you find yourself in an engine failure scenario on takeoff. This presentation expands on the work of Rick Marshall published in the May edition of EAA Sport Aviation.
Registration info for both webinar-style virtual presentations can be found at EAA.org/Webinars. Both the Founder's Innovation Prize Grand Championship Preview and So You Think You Can Make a 180 Back on Takeoff? An In-Depth Look at Engine Failure Options begin at 7 p.m. Central time.
