Am I Losing Control of My Aircraft?
Loss of Control - How to Identify and Mitigate this Potentially Deadly Risk!

Ron Timmermans
Brief Description:

GA accidents account for the majority of aviation accidents annually. Most of these accidents can be attributed to the loss of control of an aircraft inflight. In response to this persistent issue, the FAA has begun work to identify safety enhancements that will lower the "loss of control" accident rate across all categories of GA aircraft. Reducing the accident rate is at the forefront of aviation industry's agenda.


Join us for this free AOPA Safety Seminar where you will learn how to recognize potential situations where you could lose control of your aircraft, develop strategies to mitigate these instances, and employ techniques for recovery from loss of control.
