Brief Description:

Rockport Fly-In - Too Many Individual Activities to List them Here.

Controlled Flight Into Terrain - We all know it happens, so why does it keep happening?

Every year there are way too many accidents where the pilot flies a perfectly good  aircraft into the terrain or an obstruction.  Pilot Distraction; Low Situational Awareness; Asleep at the Wheel; Continued Visual Flight into Deteriorating Weather........Let's talk about it. 

Continuation Bias - What keeps a Pilot pushing forward when the conditions may be telling you to LAND?
