Loss of control inflight (LOC-I) remains a top safety focus area for NBAA’s Safety Committee, and business aviation professionals throughout the industry are working together to develop best practices and overcome the human factors that contribute to LOC-I incidents. “The newer avionics systems and automation systems are very impressive. However, they’re built by humans and they fail just like every other device we have and when that happens we have to rely on basic flying skills,” said Scott Glaser, Flight Research Inc., senior vice president, operations. “We as an industry need to step up and make those skills robust again.”
This week, NBAA Flight Plan host Pete Combs speaks with:
Scott Glaser, Flight Research Inc. senior vice president, operations

NBAA Safety Committee Chairman Tom Huff headlined a Sept. 2, 2020, web discussion hosted by Wyvern Ltd. about flight data monitoring systems increasingly utilized by both OEMs and business aviation flight departments.
Our industry continues to seek ways to improve upon its already noteworthy record of environmental responsibility, and chief among those efforts is promoting the use of sustainable aviation fuels (SAF) that burn cleaner than straight Jet A.
