On average more than three accidents per week result from improper fuel management. To help counter this trend, the AOPA Online Safety Center has launched its latest Safety Hot Spot, focusing on fuel awareness.
You'll find a Safety Checkup written by AOPA Air Safety Foundation staff pilots, various printed publications available for download, online courses, a Sporty's Safety Quiz, three video clips from the foundation's Fuel Awareness training DVD, a 10-year list of fuel-related GA accidents from the Air Safety Foundation's accident database, and anecdotes from pilots who lived to tell about their fuel management mistakes.
Each Safety Hot Spot focuses on a timely issue or trend within the general aviation community and offers a host of resources.
To make Web navigation easier, the Air Safety Foundation has added a Safety Hot Spot button to the AOPA Online Safety Center for one-click access.
