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

IFR Decision Making

IFR Decision Making:  Chasing Choices

Processing information and making clear decisions while flying in IMC can be challenging.  In this seminar we'll analyze accident scenarios where stress and confusion in IMC can lead to task saturation, problematic choices, and suboptimal decisions.
