Brief Description:
This year's FAASTeam Safety Stand Down focuses on Loss of Control. Loss of Control In-Flight was the dominant cause of fatal general aviation accidents over the last decade. Loss of Control refers to accidents resulting from situations in which the pilot should have either maintained or regained control of the aircraft, but did not. Join the thousands of other pilots across the country in attending this exciting briefing!

Attend this exciting event and earn all three Knowledge Credits for a Basic Phase in the WINGs Program! Knowledge and Proficiency are the foundations of safe aviation operations.

Forty percent of the fatal accidents during the period 2001-2010 were categorized as Loss of Control In-Flight (LOC-I), outpacing the number two fatal accident category, Controlled Flight Into Terrain (CFIT), by a three-to-one margin. Most fatal LOC-I accidents happened during the maneuvering phase, occurring about 1.4 times as often as accidents during the approach and enroute phases, and 26 times more frequently than accidents during both emergency landing phases combined.

At this exclusive presentation will look at 3 aspects of LOC:

1. Advanced Preflight - LOC often occurs when a pilot is surprised or over loaded by a mechanical failure like a flight control malfunction or loss of engine power.  These LOC accidents could be prevented if pilots could discover and prevent mechanical problems on preflight.

2. Aeronautical Decision Making - Many LOC accidents and incidents could be prevented by pilots watching for clues and cues of problems and then applying good decision making to avoid a LOC situation.  In other words, pilots should use their superior intellect so they don't have to use their superior flying skills.

3. How to recover from a LOC situation - If all else fails and a pilot finds themselves in an LOC situation there are often things that can be done to regain control of the aircraft.

Attend this exclusive FAASTeam presentation and…

·         Become part of the ongoing FAASTeam effort to improve aviation safety,

·         Discover new ways to approach safety, how to identify risks and how to reduce those risks, and

·         Learn methods and procedures to sharpen your judgment and flight discipline -- those key behavioral elements of safe flying - and increase your situational awareness.

The 2012 FAA Safety Team (FAASTeam) Safety Stand Down is being sponsored by the Nevada Wing CAP .
