Runway Safety: Pitfalls and Prevention

Runway Safety: Pitfalls and Prevention

 

Knowing airport signs, markings, and lighting isn't enough to prevent general aviation pilots from causing the majority of runway incursions. So, what are the real issues? In this seminar, we'll look at several case studies of actual runway incursions and discuss what went wrong, why they happened, and strategies for avoiding them.

CFIT and You: The Immovable Object and the Resistible Force

CFIT and You: The Immovable Object and the Resistible Force

 

CFIT stands for Controlled Flight Into Terrain. What it means is flying a perfectly good aircraft into the ground for one reason or another. Many pilots think they're immune to accidents like these, but in certain scenarios it's remarkably easy to get taken by surprise. Join us for an in-depth look at various ways pilots tangle with terrain, and how you can avoid following in their footsteps.

Thunderstorm Avoidance: What You Need to Know

Thunderstorm Avoidance: What You Need to Know

 

The rise of cockpit weather ranks as one of the great technological advances in GA. Around convective activity, the ability to see the storms provides a major confidence boost - but to be used safely, datalink weather requires both judgment and understanding of the larger ATC and weather context. In this seminar, we'll focus on datalink as just one tool in your weather avoidance kit.

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.

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
