NTSB Cites “Most Wanted” Safety Improvements
The NTSB released its annual Most Wanted List for safety improvements in January, and for general aviation the number-one issue was loss of control. “This list is grounded in the accident investigations by which NTSB learns safety lessons,” said NTSB acting chairman Christopher Hart. Loss of control has been cited as a factor in up to 40 percent of fatal GA accidents. The FAA and the industry already have worked to address the problem with training programs and by encouraging the use of angle-of-attack indicators in the cockpit.
