Brief Description:

On October 6th, 2000, a PA34-200 Piper Seneca crashed into the base of the San Gabriel Mountain range near La Verne California while beginning a missed approach for the VOR-A at KPOC. In this case study, we will break down the errors in not only the pilot’s loss of situational awareness but how their communication to ATC further complicated matters. Accidents rarely are caused by one bad decision, but one bad decision can open a door that may be hard to shut. This class will give you tools to improve situational awareness and to better understand ATC roles and what some of their limitations can be. The best way to avoid an accident or incident is to learn from the unfortunate mistakes from other accidents.
