A Pilot’s Introduction to Human Factors – 60 minutes
Technological improvements and more effective pilot training have combined to achieve an all-time low General Aviation accident rate. But that accident rate has been essentially static for twenty years. In order to get the rate even lower we’ll have to do some work on Human Factors and how they influence pilot decision making. Join us for a light-hearted look at a serious subject: A Pilot’s Introduction to Human Factors – The Final Frontier.

Short Subject – Transition Training – 10 minutes
The first few hours in a new aircraft type are historically a dangerous time for pilots. Solid transition training is essential to safely exploring the handling and performance characteristics of your craft. This topic provides tips to get the most out of your transition to a new flying machine.
