PCA Safety Seminar 2022

PCA safety seminar committee has decided to cancel our 2022 Safety Seminar. Although we received notice from a number of PCA members expressing interest in attending a live seminar, with the continuing uneasiness of the waning pandemic, it was too small a number to justify the organization of such an event.

We have found several online seminars which are now open for registration. If additional seminars are scheduled, we'll list them here as well.

*GEBA Continuing Education Seminar - March 5, 2022

*Highland Balloon Repair / BFA Continuing Education Seminar - March 19, 2022

Weather: The following files are from our 2014 Safety Seminar and are kept available here for reference. Both of these files contain the same information and both of these are large downloads. The two per page version is smaller but also a little harder to see because the images are reduced in size. Whichever works best for you.
