90 Pilots Convene to Discuss Safety

Due to a fatal crash in Connecticut, pilots gathered to discuss air safety

The Air Safety Institute met with AOPA Foundation president Bruce Landsberg on Sept. 10 to discuss air safety, airport congestion and more, according to an article from AOPA. The meeting came as a result of a plane crash in Connecticut that happened the month before and killed two children, a pilot and his son.

At the meeting Landsberg discussed—with around 90 or so pilots in the audience—emergency flying procedures, best pilot practices, noise abatement procedures, power reduction during climbs and efficient energy management. He spent a good deal of time discussing the New Haven, CT accident and explained the difficulty some pilots have when landing with a circle-to-land approach.

Whelen Engineering, a manufacturer of aviation and emergency lighting products, sponsored the meeting.

In addition to general best pilot practices, Landsberg discussed how pilots can complete an emergency landing in a crowded airport, how to best choose off-airport landing sites and what to do when encountering engine problems.
