Hazel Turner will be keeping a watchful eye over all pilots taking part in Task Week that starts tomorrow and we have embraced modern technology to locate you in the event of you landing out.
To make this work, you need a couple of things –
1/ A smart phone with the what3words app and Whatsapp loaded and allowed to use your location.
2/ Hazel Turners contact details loaded into WhatsApp – 07500472778.
3/ Ideally, your retrieve crew need the what3words app on their phone.
Here’s how it works.
You land out, open up the what3words app and assuming you have a signal, it will locate your phone, on the bottom of the phone screen is a “Share” symbol, tap the share button then tap the WhatsApp symbol. On the top right hand side of the next screen is a magnifying glass or search symbol, find Hazels number, tap the white/green arrow symbol that then loads the information into WhatsApp then tap the white/green arrow to send.
It sounds complicated but it is very simple.
Once Hazel gets your information, she can locate your retrieve crew, give them the What3words code and they can come and get you. The great thing is that the app follows the phone in real time so if you move location, it updates the retrieve crew.
PLEASE ENSURE IF YOU GO ON TASK-
A/ YOU LET HAZEL KNOW.
B/ IF YOU LAND OUT, LET HAZEL KNOW.
C/ IF YOU LAND BACK AT THE MYND, LET HAZEL KNOW.
Have a great week, fly safe and have fun.
