Fly Safe: Addressing GA Safety

Fly Safe: Addressing GA SafetyThe Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the general aviation (GA) community’s national #FlySafe campaign helps educate GA pilots about safety, including loss of control, power plant failure and controlled flight into terrain.

Stay safe! This series will show you how you can incorporate safety into every flight.

This month, we look at the importance of pattern precision. We know that regular, structured, proficiency training is perhaps the most effective means of reducing general aviation accidents. Because the traffic pattern involves nearly all piloting tasks, it is a logical choice for a proficiency training environment. Commitment to precision and consistency in pattern operations will yield operational safety benefits throughout the flight task spectrum. Let’s have a closer look on the FAA’s blog.
