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 worse enemy in weather flying

Fly by Night

Fly by Night

Especially in light aircraft, flying after dark comes with real trade-offs. Smooth air, better performance, and stunning views are great-but they're offset by trickier landings, invisible terrain, and limited emergency options. So what's the key to staying safe after sundown?

This seminar looks at night flying from a risk management perspective. Using decades of accident data, we identify common problems and recommend the best ways to avoid them.
