NTSB Roundtable (Live Webcast) Preventing in Flight Loss of Control in General Aviation
Preventing Inflight Loss of Control in General Aviation through Training and Technology
Date and Time:
Tuesday, April 24, 2018, starting at 08:30 Eastern Daylight Time Download Calendar File
There will be multiple speakers
Brief Description:

More general aviation pilots and passengers die from accidents involving loss of control in flight than any other single factor. But greater pilot situational awareness—both in the cockpit and during flight training—can make a difference. The NTSB is convening a roundtable of industry and government experts to discuss the current state of the problem, and highlight available technologies and training. The roundtable, which will be moderated by NTSB Chairman Robert Sumwalt, will also explore challenges to implementation of current technologies to reduce these largely preventable accidents. Prevent Loss of Control in Flight in General Aviation is on the NTSB’s Most Wanted List of transportation safety improvements.
