Confessions of a Pilot Examiner-Adam Rosenberg Unplugged
A data driven approach to airman certification and what the data says.
Date and Time:
Tuesday, February 20, 2018, starting at 19:00 Eastern Standard Time Download Calendar File
Adam Rosenberg, Designated Pilot Examiner
Brief Description:

In this highly informative seminar, Major Airline Captain and Designated Pilot Examiner Adam Rosenberg will make public the statistical data he has collected administering practical tests in the era of the recently implemented Airman Certification Standards.  Going well beyond just pass/fail, Adam calls upon his extensive human factors and airline training department background to collect in depth data about airmen performance during practical tests. This de-identified data when studied in context reveals meaningful and actionable information about modern day flight training to include applicants, instructors, flight schools, testing documents (ACS/PTS) and sometimes even about the evaluator himself. 

Conducted as a town hall style meeting with no formal presentation, this seminar is intended to be an interactive discussion between Adam and the various members of the local aviation community to discuss the data, its implications, what can be gleaned from it and how you can use it to make your next hour of flying better than your last.
