Training Night: Mind Over MatterTraining Night

George Perry, Senior Vice President of the Air Safety Institute

George joined the Air Safety Institute team in September 2014. He comes to AOPA with a diverse background both in general aviation and military aviation. In addition to being an active GA pilot since the age of 16, he recently completed a 20-year career in the U.S. Navy as an F-18E squadron commanding officer.  During George’s career in the Navy he held numerous senior aviation safety leadership positions including Director, F-14 Tomcat fleet safety programs, Safety Director in both Carrier Air Wing Seven and Three, as well as  F-18E Super Hornet carrier pilot training manager.

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.
