On 15 March 2017, 1st Lt Hector Bird led a joint DDR-Aerospace Education activity focusing on the impact of alcohol and other drugs on activities such as flying. He led a class discussion about alcohol’s impact on the body and the potential consequences for pilots. He then supervised the cadets as they attempted to fly a Red Bull race course using Microsoft Flight Simulator X, but while wearing “drunk goggles.” Each cadet had a co-pilot who was helping to give directions to counter the effect of the goggles. There were many simulated crashes throughout the evening. The cadets learned an important lesson on the effect of alcohol and other drugs on perception and dexterity, specifically applied to flying activities. Also assisting in the activity where 2d Lt James Blacker and 2d Lt Harrison Miller.
With the winter holiday activities upon us squadron command has decided to cancel the December 21st and 28th meetings. Squadron command hopes everyone enjoys a safe holiday and looks forward to seeing everyone after the new year in 2017.
