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. This course will explore some of the factors that can lead to loss-of-control and will provide some practical steps that can be taken by pilots to help avoid LOC.
Several links to external sources of information are provided. These links are considered to be part of the course. Pilots are strongly encouraged to follow these links, either while taking the course or upon completion so that a more complete arsenal against the loss-of-control accident can be built.
