Wed, Nov 18, 2020, 7 - 8:30 p.m. CST

Presenter: Phil Lightstone

What’s in your flight bag? The amount of power-hungry portable devices seems to have multiplied like rabbits. An average pilot might have an iPhone, iPad, ADS-B IN receiver, transceiver, personal locating device, backup GPS, tablet cooling fan, flashlights, wearable oximeter, and the list goes on and on. With different USB connectors, how does a pilot keep these power-hungry devices charged during flight, so that they can rely upon them during an emergency, without melting down the aircraft’s electrical system? Aviation journalist Phil Lightstone, will provide the facts about the technologies, cutting through the jargon, and three-letter acronyms to help you make an informed decision. Phil will also discuss the future of aircraft battery tech including Lithium batteries for the aircraft.
