How to Crash an Airplane and Dramatically Increase Survivability

with Brian Schiff

A VC99's Pilot Proficiency Class

Wednesday, Apr 29    7:00 - 9:00 PM

This class is not a lesson on intentionally crashing an airplane, rather it covers the finer points of the best way to crash-land an airplane. There are techniques that pilots can employ to increase survivability and reduce injury when things go bad, and they are forced to make an emergency landing. The class will stress the importance of reducing the main injury-producing factor, deceleration forces, and how to use the aircraft and terrain for this purpose. The class will cover various emergency landing techniques for various flight and terrain conditions.
