This year thousands of pilots across the country will come together as a Safety Community to participate in a dynamic, interactive program devoted to Local Safety Issues, Loss of Control, and the number one aviation fatal factor – Human Error. Don’t miss this opportunity to hear from local flying experts, participate in dynamic discussions, and gain practical insights on how you can learn more from accident reports and reduce errors in your own flying.
· Become part of the ongoing FAASTeam effort to improve aviation safety,
· Discover new ways to approach safety, how to identify risks and how to reduce those risks, and
· Learn methods and procedures to sharpen your judgment and flight discipline -- those key behavioral elements of safe flying - and increase your situational awareness.
Part 1) FAA Information Session
You’ll hear the latest from your local Flight Standards District Office (FSDO) including, Local Safety Issues, General Aviation (GA) services and oversight, office contact, and appointment information. You’ll also learn the history of Safety Stand Down events and how you can participate in exciting continuation education projects for pilots and aviation maintenance technicians.
There’s a lot to be learned from reading accident reports but it takes some digging and a little special knowledge to understand why mistakes occur and, more importantly how to avoid them or at least make their consequences less severe. This fascinating and entertaining look at the interface between the aviation system and the human mind is something no pilot will want to miss.
Part 3) Loss of Control Panel Discussion
A moderated panel of respected aviation experts will discuss Loss of Control accidents and offer advice on how to hone your skills and sharpen your judgment to get more utility, safety, and fun from your flying. There will be plenty of opportunity to ask questions and participate in the discussion.
Presented by Albert Schnur - FAASTeam Program Manager FRG FSDO / Dean Marshall - MI CFI, AGI, FAASTeam Rep, COMM Pilot / and Bob Lippman - Phd, A&P, IA
Be a part of the safety community. Tell your friends, “I’ll see you at the Stand Down.”
