Event Summary

Safety Seminar : General Aviation Safety Seminar - Transition Training
NTSB Training Center, Ashburn, VA
12/2/2017 9:00 AM

Join us for this special NTSB Safety Seminar addressing the risks involved when pilots have not acquired adequate training for different aircraft they may be operating.

This is the thirteenth in a series of NTSB safety seminars focused on general aviation accidents. NTSB Member Earl Weener will be a featured presenter. Attendees will also hear presentations from NTSB investigators, as well as representatives from AOPA, NAFI, and Cirrus Aircraft, regarding their perspectives on best practices in the industry and the resources available to pilots and flight instructors.

The four-hour program is FREE, and pilots participating in the FAA’s WINGS program will receive credit for attendance. The seminar is solely an instructional opportunity and not a media event. Because space is limited, early registration is highly recommended.
