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.

Avoiding Thunderstorms

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.
