Air Safety Foundation gives pilots tips for safe flying during AOPA Fly-In

Improving general aviation safety is the AOPA Air Safety Foundation's top priority. Throughout AOPA's Fly-In and Open House, the foundation gave hundreds of pilots tips for flying safely, whether as a single pilot in IFR conditions or during an in-flight emergency.

In "Do the Right Thing - Decision Making for Pilots," AOPA Executive Director Bruce Landsberg stressed that one of the keys to safe flying is decision making. He cautioned pilots not to fall into a "mission mindset."

"Remember, the safety and security of our nation does not depend on you completing your 'mission,'" Landsberg said, "It just takes one decision to prevent an accident. Will [not completing the flight] matter a month from now? Chances are, in most cases, it won't."
