NTSB Issues Safety Alerts Focusing on Improving General Aviation Safety

The alerts are intended for pilots and mechanics.

The National Transportation Safety Board has issued four safety alerts to general aviation pilots and mechanics highlighting safety issues identified in several recent accident investigations.

According to NTSB's news release, three of the safety alerts are geared toward pilots and address mountain flying skills and survival equipment considerations; transition training before flying an unfamiliar aircraft with different flight characteristics or avionics; and performing thorough and advanced preflight checks on aircraft that have just received flight control or trim system maintenance. The safety alert aimed at mechanics discusses flight control and trim system misrigging problems.

Each safety alert includes accident summaries from recent and past investigations and the role the safety issue played in those accidents. The safety alerts also provide general guidance on how to apply the lessons learned from each accident and where pilots and mechanics can find free educational resources to learn more about prevention strategies.
