Safeguard Your Flights with Valuable Insights: Practical FDM Solutions for Smaller Operators

​​​How can small and medium-sized operators use data to improve the safety of their operations and prevent accidents? It’s not as daunting—or as costly as it seems. In this special event, Safeguard Your Flights with Valuable Insights: Practical FDM Solutions for Smaller Operators, NTSB Vice Chairman Bruce Landsberg​ will moderate a roundtable discussion with experts from government and industry about the benefits and proven value-added of flight data monitoring (FDM) programs for any sized operation.

In this roundtable, you will learn how to incorporate FDM from others who have done it and find out what insights can be revealed to improve your operations. Our expert panel will explore the impediments and obstacles to implementation and discuss real-world practical strategies and solutions. NTSB investigators will also discuss what they have learned from crashes where FDM could have made a difference. 

The emphasis of this NTSB discussion will be on smaller operators, who may not have the resources of larger commercial flight departments, and how they can easily, affordably, and practically incorporate FDM into their safety and operational activities. 

Requiring the use of recorders and encouraging flight data monitoring in all passenger-carrying operations is currently on the NTSB’s Most Wanted List​.​
