NBAA Safety Town Hall Meeting

By:  Earl Weener
On Wednesday, Oct. 31, I’ll be in Orlando, Fla., participating in the National Business Aviation Association’s 65th Annual Meeting and Convention by speaking at one of NBAA’s “Safety Town Hall” meetings. My topic will be on improving pilot training for the business aviation sector. I plan to contribute through a discussion on general aviation safety, focusing on several of the all-too-typical fatal business flying accidents. Each year, hundreds of people are killed in general aviation, and thousands more are injured. However, these statistics do not need to remain static, as the causes of these accidents are often repeated scenarios of previous accidents. These types of accidents can be addressed through training, and that’s what I want to emphasize.

I hope you are able to join me at this event hosted at the Orange County Conference Center. Bottom line: every pilot can fly like a pro, simply by improving their skills through training.
