Event Summary

Safety Seminar : Night Flying
NTSB Training Center
12/15/2018 9:00 AM

​The National Transportation Safety Board Training Center will be holding a Night Flying Safety Seminar on Saturday, December 15, 2018. This seminar is the fifteenth in a series of safety seminars all presented by the NTSB, focused on general aviation (GA) accidents.  The 4-hour event will explore the benefits and risks of night flying, some of the causes of night flying accidents, and resources available to the pilot community.  It is designed for pilots, mechanics and other members of the GA community.

Attendees will experience a unique opportunity, hearing from NTSB investigators regarding how they investigate accidents, and sharing the lessons learned from these accident investigations. We are pleased to have Adrian Eichorn, an avid GA and professional airline pilot, speak about operational hazards, physical limitations, and regulations that govern night flying.

NTSB Board Member Earl Weener will be a featured presenter, and attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions of Member Weener and all the presenters.

The NTSB has partnered with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to enhance general aviation safety for this seminar. As an added feature, pilots who attend the seminar will receive WINGS credit through the FAA.

The NTSB Training Center doors will open at 8:30 am and the seminar will run from 9:00am – 1:30pm. Attendees must have a government-issued photo ID, such as a driver’s license, to enter the building.

Please join us for this important discussion regarding the risks and rewards of night flying. The seminar is FREE; however, registration will be limited to 100 attendees, so please register early!
