Weather Accidents

ASI Investigates: Weather Accidents

 

Weather is often blamed as the cause of accidents when, in reality, it’s poor decision making that’s the culprit. Arm yourself to make the right weather choices at crucial moments before and during flight.

 

Here’s what you’ll learn:

·         Why getting the big weather picture is important

·         How to improve your go/no-go decision-making process

·         Tips to “weatherize” your mindset and avoid traps like flying VFR into IMC

·         Why technology can be a great tool and your worst enemy in weather flying

Why Do Bad Things Happen to Good Pilots?

AOPA ASI Executive Director Richard McSpadden will review recent accidents, the elements surrounding them and discuss why good pilots made decisions. Richard will rely on research from the books “Think Again”, and “Thinking Fast, and Slow” which dissect the way the brain makes decisions. He’ll lead the audience through some shortfalls of the human decision-making process and the implications of those shortfalls in an aviation environment. The discussion will close with an exercise to identify and mitigate red flags which could lead to poor aviation decision making.
