What is an airborne pilot deviation?  

The actions of a pilot that result in the violation of a Federal Aviation Regulation while in flight. Such deviations could result in a loss of separation between one airplane and another, or with the next mountain peak!

Why do pilot deviations happen? 

Pilots don’t start off the day by saying, “Today I’m going to go out and commit a pilot deviation.” They don’t say, “I’m going to fly through some airspace that I’m not supposed to.” No, pilot deviations occur because of poor technique, inattention, loss of situational awareness, or failure to plan properly.

The FAA Safety Team wants airmen to be aware of this problem, and encourages pilots to increase their awareness and skills so that aviation safety is enhanced.
