Call To Action: Reducing Runway Excursions

Statistics have shown the fatal accident rate in business aviation has been declining over the last several years. Unfortunately, the number of accidents related to runway excursions has remained constant or even increased in some cases. In 2021, 50% of the business aviation accidents and incidents were the result of runway excursions according to a recent study by the Flight Safety Foundation. This session will examine the topic of runway excursions and techniques that small flight departments can incorporate today to mitigate their risks.

4:15-4:30 p.m.
