Emergency! Getting It Right When Things Go Wrong

We spend time training for them, but real-world emergencies are rare enough that it’s easy to get complacent. They don’t always happen to “other pilots,” though, and preparation can make a big difference when things don’t go as planned:

            What if you lose 500 rpm during takeoff, but the engine is running smoothly?

            What if the ammeter drops to zero during a flight in IMC?

What if your left aileron develops a strong vibration in flight?

Our new seminar is full of expert tips on handling those “up here, but wishing you were down there” scenarios. We focus on how to keep abnormal situations from becoming full-blown emergencies, offer advice on keeping critical problems under control, and give our best advice on off-airport landings.

Mind Over Matter

Being a safe pilot requires more than good stick and rudder skills. George Perry, AOPA’s Air Safety Institute Senior Vice President discusses simple techniques that can increase pilot performance and reduce pilot error. How we approach decision making has an impact on our flying safety. Enjoying the freedom of flight is just as much about learning how to think as it is learning how to fly. This discussion looks at some of the time tested ways pilots in the safest sectors of aviation are “trained to think” about safety. These lessons learned are easily transferable to general aviation pilots and if followed can help pilots adopt a safety mindset and decrease decision based human error.
