Learning from Accidents

Feedback from the recent Club Safety Officer seminars indicated that there was real enthusiasm for ‘I learned about flying’ stories that gave specific examples illustrating the safety advice we already offer. To this end, we have decided to share the lessons highlighted by some of the accident reports that we receive with the wider membership, where the pilot involved is happy for us to so do. These will be published as a series of ‘Learning from Accidents’ publications. The first of these, titled Fitness to Fly and Intervention is now available. We are grateful to the pilots who have given their permission to use their stories and hope that they will help others to not repeat their accident.
