Work Continues to Prevent Loss of Control Inflight Incidents

Aug. 19, 2019

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
  • BJ Ransbury, Aviation Performance Solutions president
  • Jeff Wofford, Commscope chief pilot
