NTSB GA Safety Road Show:
Strategies for Preventing In-Flight Loss of Control Accidents

More general aviation pilots and passengers die from accidents involving loss of control in flight than any other single factor. For this reason, preventing loss of control in flight in general aviation has been on the NTSB’s Most Wanted List of transportation safety improvements since 2015. But what exactly leads to loss of control accidents and how can they be prevented? A panel of industry and government GA safety experts will discuss causes, strategies and solutions, and NTSB air safety investigators and medical officers will present accident case studies. NTSB Chairman Robert Sumwalt and NTSB Board Member Earl Weener will also be participating. Join us July 24, 0830–1300, at EAA’s AirVenture 2018, Forum Building 6, to meet the participants, and hear more about this important safety issue.
