Search Pilot Clinic Lands at Fort Peck

 

September 13, 2017



Pilots from around the region descended on the Fort Peck Hotel and Lanny Hanson’s hanger on Sept. 8. The three-day training included talks, case studies, on the ground training (no pun) in survival techniques, search pattern recognition, spotter techniques and the utilization of iPads and GPS technologies. All together, the 29 attending pilots logged three hours each in a high-performance plane practicing search techniques.

The training was the first of its kind held in eastern Montana, according to former Sheriff Glen Meier, who attended the training. Fort Peck’s Lanny Hanson sponsored the event and hosted the flying portions of the agenda.
