Ever wonder how the NTSB uncovers all of the factors that led to a fatal accident? Put on your investigative hat at AOPA Aviation Summit, Nov. 5 through 7, in Tampa, Fla., and work through the accident investigation process in the AOPA Air Safety Foundation’s newest safety seminar, “What Went Wrong?”.
During the seminar, you’ll analyze different accidents, starting at the accident scene and working your way back. As you pick out the links in the accident chain, you’ll also learn how to become a safer pilot.
The “What Went Wrong?” seminar is one of dozens of education seminars being offered at AOPA Aviation Summit. Other safety-related seminars include “Single-Pilot IFR,” “Surviving After a Forced Landing,” “Ditching and Water Survival,” “Mastering Takeoffs and Landings,” and more. Take a look at our Summit Program and plan your schedule so that you can take in all of the seminars that peak your interest.
So what are you waiting for? Sign up for AOPA Aviation Summit (the new AOPA Expo) today! You’ll receive special discount pricing for registering before Oct. 14.
