ACCIDENT WISE is more than just an aviation safety seminar. it includes multiple presentations from top industry speakers, exhibits by local aviation vendors, door prizes, and a silent auction for a new Lightspeed headset. Best of all, it's FREE!
The Aero Club of Northern California produces the event with a lot of help from these key sponsors: AOPA Foundation, NASA ASRS, and Cirrus Aircraft.
Speakers - Our goal is to provide you with the top speakers in the industry, and this year's agenda tops last years.
