Spring Meeting: 6th-7th March 1993, Cambridge
The Garden House Hotel again. Tony Segal gave a very revealing presentation on the risks to glider pilots from inadequate cushioning in their seats. He showed a film of a laboratory glider crash and demonstrated the absorptive properties of Dynafoam and Chipfoam – which could mean the difference between walking away and never walking again. Dr Mike Almond spoke about his experiences as a medical evacuation officer in the Gulf War.
- Crash-worthiness and pilot injuries in gliders (Segal)
