Maurice Dacey, RIC FAASTeam Program Manager
Brief Description:

In this presentation we’ll address recommendations from the General Aviation Joint Steering Committee – a government / industry group that analyzes GA accidents and incidents.  The Committee feels that improved pilot training in safety risk management, emergency procedures & maneuvers, and human factors can reduce the numbers of fatal GA Loss of Control Accidents.  

During this interactive meeting we’ll be watching video of some common GA activities.  We’ll get to know a pilot, his family, and some of his associates and we’ll go along with them on a flight to a mountain airport in rural Virginia.  But before that, you’ll see some owner/operator maintenance activity. Don't miss this informative briefing. Click the link below and register TODAY.

Additional Event Information & Acknowledgement of Industry Sponsor(s):

Special thanks to Signature Flight Support!

A Loss of Control (LOC) accident involves an unintended departure of an aircraft from controlled flight. LOC can happen because the aircraft enters a flight regime that is outside its normal flight envelope and may quickly develop into a stall or spin. It can introduce an element of surprise for the pilot.
