Ground School: Week 4

Tonight’s class started with about 15 min. of video. I’m not even sure it was that much actually, but it seemed to be wrapping up the aerodynamics chapter.

The real bulk of the class was spent with Mike Evangelista, the Santa Monica Tower manager talking about what they do in the tower. It was a really interesting guest lecture. It wasn’t so much about the technical aspects of how it works, but more about the personalities and what it’s like working in the tower. He also told us about the monthly safety meetings at SMO. There should be one next Wednesday. If I have time, I think I’ll try to go.
