The FAA Safety Team 2013 National Safety Stand Down:

Don’t miss this opportunity to hear from local flying experts and the NTSB, participate in dynamic discussions, and gain practical insights on how you can learn more from accident reports and reduce errors in your own flying. Be a part of the safety community.  Tell your friends, “I’ll see you at the Stand Down.”  Plus, Tour the GCC Campus, and ask about the exciting Aviation Programs offered.

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


Part 1)  FAA Info. Session - JOHN STEUERNAGLE, FAASafety Team, (FAAST) Program Manager - FPM

You’ll hear the latest from your local Flight Standards District Office (FSDO) including, Local Safety Issues, General Aviation (GA) services and oversight, office contact, and appointment information.  You’ll also learn the history of Safety Stand Down events and how you can participate in exciting continuation education projects for pilots and aviation maintenance technicians.

Part 2)  Introduction to Human Error - JOHN STEUERNAGLE, FAAST FPM and Author of this year's National Safety Stand Down

There’s a lot to be learned from reading accident reports but it takes some digging and a little special knowledge to understand why mistakes occur and, more importantly how to avoid them or at least make their consequences less severe.  This fascinating and entertaining look at the interface between the aviation system and the human mind is something no pilot will want to miss.

-John Streurenagle formerly worked with AOPA producing Safety Programming and then after joining the FAA was assigned as an inspector in Alaska.  He is a Human Factors Scholar, and brings to the table a wealth of Aviation Experience and Pilot Knowledge.

Dr. William Scott AME, Scott Rubke, GCC Aviation Div. Chair, John Steuernagle FAA, Omar Lala, CFII, Leader IMC Club, Santa Paula, CA, Ron Berinstein CFII, Aerobatic Pilot.
