Collision Course

Collision Course: Avoiding Airborne Traffic

 

The “big sky” can get awfully small when multiple aircraft are in the vicinity. Even with ATC support and traffic displays, near misses happen too frequently and midair collisions still happen. Advanced technologies which ensure more precise course and altitude tracking and more aircraft converging on fewer airports all work to shrink the “big sky”.   

 

ASI’s new seminar looks at the problem from a risk management perspective. We identify high-risk scenarios and locations, then lay out strategies for avoiding them. From congested corridors to frenetic fly-ins, we talk about:

 

·         Human eye limitations that impact the “see and avoid” philosophy

·         Proven techniques on enhancing visual scan effectiveness

·         Maximizing your visibility to other aircraft

·         The promise and peril of cockpit technology

·         “Danger zones” you may not be aware of

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.
