NTSB Most-Wanted List Highlights Loss of Control, Other Risks
The NTSB’s 2017-18 “Most Wanted” safety improvements list features 10 transportation-related priorities, including several that align with key risks identified by NBAA and other general aviation stakeholders. For example, the list includes one item – loss of control in-flight (LOC-I) – which is both on NBAA’s list of Top Safety Focus Areas, and a top priority for the General Aviation Joint Steering Committee, which NBAA participates in as an industry member. About half of all general aviation accidents are caused by LOC-I, NTSB said. Learn more about the NTSB’s Most Wanted list.
