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.”

Changing weather patterns are affecting aviation, and among the greatest resulting risks to air safety is clear air turbulence (CAT). A study by scientist Dr. Paul Williams has led him to predict that severe CAT will increase in the future.
The outlook for business aviation hiring remains strong, despite a number of challenges weighing on the global economy. However, job seekers must carefully consider multiple factors when making their employment decision.
Just as NBAA works to promote business aviation at the national level, regional groups play a vital advocacy role in their state, city or area. Today, four business aviation professionals share their experiences in launching one of the country’s newest regional groups.
