LOC-I Loss of Control Inflight
Loss of Control Inflight (LOC-I) Is the Leading Cause of Aircraft Accidents
Date and Time:
Saturday, February 19, 2022, starting at 11:00 Eastern Standard Time Download Calendar File
Master Pilot Michael Windom
Brief Description:

  Loss of Control Inflight (LOC-I) is THE Leading Cause of Aircraft Accidents.

LOC can be either Inflight or Not Inflight. Why do pilots Lose Control of their aircraft? Is it due to Lack of Training, Lack of Currency, Onboard Instrument Failure, Weather (VFR into IMC), Stall/Spin on Base to Final turn, Runway excursion, "Moose Stall"? All of these are possibilities. However, there are many other causes.

During this seminar, we will review and discuss some LOC accidents as well as other possible causes of LOC and how these accidents may be prevented. We will also discuss what we, both Individually and as a member of the Flying Community, can do to lessen the probability of LOC.

Since LOC is the leading cause of aircraft accidents, it is an important topic that all of us must understand and work together to prevent. This topic, and the topic of our seminar that was held in November, CFIT- Controlled Flight Into Terrain, are the two deadliest causes of aircraft accidents. If we can reduce the number of accidents from LOC and CFIT, we will greatly reduce the number of Fatalities and enhance Aviation Safety for all of us and our passengers.
