Safety Pilot Landmark Accident: Pointing fingers

This month's Landmark Accident is notable not because of the accident; visual flight into marginal VFR or instrument meteorological conditions (IMC) is not as rare as it should be. There are constant reminders by the Air Safety Institute and most aviation publications and websites that this is not a life-prolonging activity. Rather, it was the legal maneuvering afterward that nearly changed the training landscape.

Letters

I just finished reading Rod Machado’s article (“A Hot Topic!” July 2012) and say a hearty amen to the comments in favor of stick-and-rudder training.
