Monthly Meeting - Why Good Pilots Make Bad Decisions
Richard McSpadden will review recent accidents, the elements surrounding them, and discuss why good pilots made bad decisions.
Date and Time:
Wednesday, November 2, 2022, starting at 18:30 Eastern Daylight Time Download Calendar File
Richard McSpadden, AOPA Air Safety Institute
Brief Description:

No pilot sets out on a flight seeking calamity. Unfortunately (and particularly in General Aviation), all too often what starts out as a routine flight somehow turns into something that at best, scares the dickens out of us, or at worst, damages people or property. ASI Executive Director Richard McSpadden will review recent accidents, the elements surrounding them, and discuss why good pilots made bad decisions.

Richard McSpadden was appointed Executive Director of the AOPA Air Safety Institute in February 2017 and was promoted to Senior Vice President in July 2020. He currently leads a team of certified flight instructors and content creators who develop and distribute aviation safety material –free of charge— in order to advance general aviation safety industry-wide. 

ASI distributes material through a dedicated YouTube channel, iTunes podcasts, Facebook, and a dynamic website. ASI material is accessed 12 million times annually.
