Loss of Control - The Greatest Challenge in GA
Addressing Loss of Control
Date and Time:
Saturday, August 31, 2019, starting at 08:30 Eastern Daylight Time Download Calendar File
Terry Connorton FAASTeam Representative
Brief Description:

It is hard to imagine losing control of an airplane in flight. But far too frequently that is exactly what happens and usually with serious results. Most loss-of-control accidents are fatal. These accidents happen in both VFR and IMC conditions, during the day and at night. They are not limited to inexperienced or VFR only pilots. At this informative briefing we will discuss strategies to help you prevent losing control.  We will also review some of the safety enhancements recommended by the GAJSC Loss of Control Work Group.  You will be given the opportunity to discuss several pertinent case studies with the group.  Click the  link below and register TODAY.

Additional Event Information & Acknowledgement of Industry Sponsor(s):

Thank You to the Spartanburg Downtown Memorial Airport for hosting this event.

A Loss of Control (LOC) accident involves an unintended departure of an aircraft from controlled flight. LOC can happen because the aircraft enters a flight regime that is outside its normal flight envelope and may quickly develop into a stall or spin. It can introduce an element of surprise for the pilot.
