The National Transportation Safety Board will hold a one-day forum to examine the problem of loss-of-control crashes in general aviation, and explore possible solutions. The event, “Humans and Hardware: Preventing General Aviation Inflight Loss of Control,” will be held from 9 am – 5 pm ET on October 14, 2015, in Washington, D.C.
Topics addressed will include an overview of the types of loss of control accidents, human performance and medical issues, potential training improvements, and technological enhancements that can reduce loss of control accidents.
The forum will feature presentations from pilots, instructors, general aviation advocacy groups, the Federal Aviation Administration, and manufacturers of potential technological countermeasures, among others.
The event will be held in the NTSB Board Room and Conference Center, located at 429 L’Enfant Plaza, S.W. Washington D.C. The forum is free and open to the public. In addition, the forum can be viewed via webcast here: http://ntsb.capitolconnection.org/.
