Robert Breaux, Ph.D., CFII
Brief Description:

Please visit the Orlando Executive Airport FAASTeam Library web site:

·       The fatal accident rate for Experimental/Amateur-built aircraft is more than twice the rate for traditionally manufactured aircraft.

·       Some General aviation accidents are associated with inadequate pilot performance do to inadequate or no transition training in the accident aircraft

·       Transition training is essential to flight safety – especially when transitioning into Experimental Amateur-built and Light Sport aircraft.

·       Because amateur-built aircraft flight characteristics, aircraft controls and instrument placement can vary significantly from one builder to another, airframe-specific transition training is often recommended.

·       Transition training instructors must be thoroughly familiar with each airframe in which they give instruction.

·       Pilots holding Private Pilot or higher certificates who learned to fly in traditional manufactured aircraft are twice as likely to experience accidents in Light Sport aircraft as are Light Sport pilots who trained only in Light Sport Aircraft.
