    Next (Username Protected) gave a detailed presentation on Phenom 100/300 accidents, with a deep look at Runway Excursions. We are going to turn this presentation into a webinar in the near future.

    The big takeaway was that if the runway is wet and non-grooved, always use Contaminated landing numbers.

    Following Tom, Jon from the Phenom Camera Ship gave an awesome presentation on the development of the Shot Over camera system and how they used the plane for almost all of the Top Gun II air-to-air shots. He was able to share some amazing videos from the filming.

    Marcus and Michael:

    Thanks for putting together a fabulous Phenom Pilots weekend event in Newport Beach. The presentations on Saturday morning were both informative and fun.

    My favorite presentation was the Phenom 300 camera ship. Kinda hard to believe that a P300 owner like us was willing to take the risk to get a major STC done on his personal P300 for a never-done-before P300 modification. Even harder to believe that he did it without a prior commitment from Paramount Pictures for the Top Gun aerial filming work. His descriptions of piloting the airplane to get the aerial film shots for the movie was almost unbelievable to me.

    Great selection on the Balboa Bay Hotel —- the location, accommodations, and food were all first class all the way.

    Looking forward to the next Phenom Pilots Event

    Wonderful event, thanks for putting this together Marcus and Michael. I was only able to be in town for the speaker series on Saturday, but the safety content across multiple presentations was worth it. Hopefully I can make the full weekend next year to meet everyone else!

    A big thanks to Marcus and Michael for the coordination required to put this conference together. I'll echo what others have stated in that the venue was spectacular along with the networking and camaraderie. Great to spend a little time with each of you this past week along with current and future clients.
