SMAC080 – Flying Around Volcanoes, Oxygen Deprivation and Pressurization

Victoria is heading to Iceland, and opened a discussion on how volcanoes can disrupt flights. You can check volcanic activity around the world.
Rick brought up the recent crash of a TBM900 near Jamaica due to possible hypoxia and depressurization. Carl went over some of the warning signs of depressurization and how to protect yourself in the event of a loss in cabin pressure. Carl also went over the CARE checklist, which is Consequences, Alternatives, Reality, and External Pressures.
