The National Transportation Safety Board will host a “safety road show” at EAA AirVenture 2018 in
Oshkosh, Wisconsin, highlighting the prevention of in-flight loss of control.
More general aviation pilots and passengers die from
accidents involving loss of control than any other single cause.
WHAT: A panel of industry and government
general aviation safety experts will discuss loss-of-control causes, prevention
strategies and solutions, and NTSB air safety investigators and medical
officers will present accident case studies.
