NTSB to Host Roundtable on In-Flight Loss of Control

The one-day roundtable, “Prevent Loss of Control in Flight in General Aviation Through Training and Technology," will take place in Washington, D.C., on April 24. Eighteen industry and government experts will participate, and the discussion will be moderated by NTSB Chairman Robert L. Sumwalt.

The National Transportation Safety Board will host a roundtable Tuesday on preventing in-flight loss of control in general aviation. The goal is to open a discussion about possible measures to prevent loss of control, which has contributed to more than 40 percent of all single-engine, fixed-wing general aviation fatal accidents.

The one-day roundtable, “Prevent Loss of Control in Flight in General Aviation Through Training and Technology," will take place in Washington, D.C., on April 24. Eighteen industry and government experts will participate, and the discussion will be moderated by NTSB Chairman Robert L. Sumwalt.

“More general-aviation pilots and passengers die from accidents involving loss of control in flight than any other single factor," Sumwalt said. "Our goal is for these experts to discuss solutions available to prevent loss of control and to identify the path forward in our continued joint effort to improve safety.”

Loss of control accidentals involve an aircraft’s unintentional departure from controlled flight and can be caused by a variety of factors, including weather, loss of situational awareness, or pilot distraction.

The agenda and other information about the roundtable discussion are available online at  https://go.usa.gov/xQDvC. The event is also scheduled to be webcast live at http://ntsb.capitolconnection.org/.
