A pilot’s quest to understand a small but haunting critical mistake he made as PIC—and help others avoid similar errors—led to the development of the Air Safety Institute’s most-viewed new product of 2012.
Tens of thousands of pilots learned about the insidious effects of stress through the Air Safety Institute’s No Greater Burden a sobering look at the grave consequences of a relatively small error. The institute’s other popular educational products included a pilot’s first-person account of an unexpected descent through clouds; resources about the dangers of thunderstorms; and a look at what a few minutes’ delay in weather data can mean for a pilot flying in the vicinity of storms. Did you miss any of these educational multimedia products?
These safety programs were made possible by generous donations from pilots like you.
