AOPA Offers Safety Seminars On Midairs

Pilots may think that talking to ATC or using ADS-B protects them from midair collisions, but mistakes still can happen, and they can be fatal. AOPA’s Air Safety Institute is taking on the midair threat in a big way, offering in-person seminars at 48 sites across the U.S. this year. “What we hope pilots take away from this seminar is that even if you are doing everything right, you can find yourself in a situation where you are closer in proximity to other airplanes than you realize,” said Richard McSpadden, executive director of the AOPA Air Safety Institute.

NTSB Cites ‘Adverse Feedback Loops’ In Bell Crash

The NTSB issued its final report on Tuesday following its investigation of the Bell 525 crash in July 2016 that killed two pilots during a test flight in Texas. The board cited a “severe vibration” of the helicopter, “which was not predicted during development,” as the probable cause of the crash. The vibration led to the crew’s inability to maintain sufficient rotor rotation speed, leading to excessive flapping of the main rotor blade. The rotor blade contacted the tail boom, leading to the in-flight breakup.

Virgin Galactic Back In The Air

Virgin Galactic is ramping up its test-flight program in Mojave, with a goal to bring tourists to space later this year.
