SMAC113 NTSB Most Wanted List

Pre-Flight Checklist:
We have a special show tonight with a big cast of characters: Rick Felty, Victoria Zajko, Tom Frick, Larry Overstreet and Sean Moody. Paul Grieco also joins us tonight as a special guest.

Cruise Flight:
Tonight’s topic is the NTSB Most Wanted List
  • Reducing fatigue-related accidents and FAR 117
  • Stories from the crew about flying fatigued
  • Implementing fatigue management training at your flight school, having a fatigue checklist, and knowing your personal limits
  • Medical fitness for duty, considering other issues in our medical background that could prevent flying
  • Disconnecting from deadly distractions
  • The difficulty of learning to use apps and devices in the cockpit, which often do not work on the ground.
  • Loss of control, and the use of an angle of attack indicator
Listener Mail:
A listener from Facebook had a question about approach segments such as initial, intermediate and final.
