To the average person, it might seem a bit morbid that pilots pay so much attention to aircraft accidents. After all, when was the last time you saw an article about an accident in a car magazine? But flying isn’t like driving, and accidents deserve attention: They let us learn from others’ mistakes, help us think critically about our skills, and provide a mental “nudge” if we find ourselves in similar situations.
With that in mind, the Air Safety Institute’s new seminar, Accident Case Study: Live, aims to put a new spin on safety-oriented accident analysis. Working with several compelling real-life cases, presenter and audience will play the role of accident investigator—starting at the crash scene and working backwards through physical evidence, eyewitness testimony, and other leads to figure out exactly what went wrong, and why.

"...a pilot who saw the TOLDs seminar last year says that she thinks our advice to "land straight ahead" may have saved her life this past year when she had an engine out. She uses the technique we teach of "spring loading" herself on every takeoff, and so she was able to instantly respond when the engine did fail. Even was able to stay on the runway!"
"A very potent presentation. Left me with a few, but powerful tools that I feel I could stick to in an emergency."
"The best I have been to — this was extremely beneficial."
"Good, fast-moving presentation — very practical with varied examples."
"Very good presentation! The instructor had the audience thinking through the entire evening."
