Warren Smith
Brief Description:

Does the thought of dealing with the FAA equate to the thought of a tooth extraction? Does the very presence of an FAA inspector elevate your blood pressure beyond acceptable third class medical standards? While you may fear the FAA more than a loss-of-thrust-after-takeoff scenario, perhaps things are not as bad as they seem. Often hype and rumors about the FAA have done more to shape perception than reality. Warren Smith, FAA Safety Program Manager, will be on hand to help to help minimize your angst. Join us, if you dare, for a unique event: an FAA safety seminar...about the FAA...presented by the FAA.

We'll discuss:

  • What the FAA is really all about and how you can leverage this knowledge to your advantage.
  • The FAA's current philosophy regarding compliance and enforcement and how it applies to you.
  • Two things you can do that nearly guarantee the FAA will never have to show up at your accident, and the proof that supports it.
  • How to collaborate with the FAA on aviation safety.
