We study accidents so we can avoid accidents.
In 2018 there were 381 general aviation (GA) fatalities, which translates to an estimated rate of 1.029 deaths per 100k hours flown. Most often, pilot error contributed to the outcome.
In their efforts to lower that number, the FAA has placed a focus on risk management. They even published a “Risk Management Handbook.” They recommend the PAVE model, the 5 P’s model, and the use of risk matrices, all subjects discussed in this set of flashcards.
These 19 compelling stories discuss JFK Jr., the Space Shuttle Challenger, and the deadliest ever aviation accident, among other compelling stories. We cover all ten of the FAA's most common reasons for GA accidents.
Our stories are short and entertaining, but highly educational, and unlike our other flashcards you will not be tested on the material.
We do think they will make you a safer pilot because a good pilot is always.......well we hope you know the rest of it.
