Hazards and Preventive Measures to Reduce Night Flying Risk
Date and Time:
Wednesday, October 25, 2017, starting at 19:00 Eastern Daylight Time
Speaker(s): Bob McCabe
Night-flying has always been, and continues to be, more dangerous than flying during the day. This is, for the most part, because of a lack of visual cues and our vulnerability as humans to be affected by illusions. Historical accident data indicates that not only does the risk of specific types of accidents increase at night (in the form of dark-night takeoffs, inadvertent VFR-into-IMC, CFIT, black-hole illusion), but also that these accidents are usually fatal. In this presentation, you will gain a thorough understanding of the hazards that cause accidents during night operations and receive practical preventative measures you can immediately apply to keep you safer when the lights go out. Don’t miss this critical and informative presentation!
