Energy Management and Avoiding Loss of Control
Preventing loss of control through application of energy management principles.
Date and Time:
Wednesday, June 21, 2017, starting at 17:00 Arizona Download Calendar File
Juan Merkt, Ph.D, CFI
Brief Description:

Under the Airman Certification Standards (ACS), the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has mandated that private and commercial pilot applicants demonstrate understanding of energy management in several areas of operation. Poor management of the energy associated with vertical flight path and/or airspeed is a significant factor in loss of control in-flight and runway excursions during landing, two leading causes of accidents in aviation. Beyond the basic principles of altitude-airspeed exchange, this seminar will also present energy principles, control rules, and error management skills for safely and effectively handling the airplane’s energy state—total energy and its distribution over altitude and airspeed. Attendees will gain knowledge and tools to confront the root causes of the problem, and will be better equipped to avoid a loss of control event.
