EAA to Improve GA Safety Through Turn-Back Study

In an attempt to improve general aviation safety, the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) has formed a team that will study the 180-degree turn back to the runway following engine failure on takeoff.Led by EAA's board vice chairman, Charlie Precourt, and EAA's vice president of advocacy and safety, Sean Elliott, the team will focus on reactions to engine failure at takeoff, stall awareness and recovery after loss of power in a takeoff attitude, and teaching pilots how to properly judge their next move when in this scenario."EAA's action following a National Transportation Safety Board report that indicates engine failure on takeoff/climb-out was a significant contributor to GA accidents," the EAA said in a statement. "The group will study how to incorporate these piloting skills in basic private and sport pilot certification, as well as additional training programs."The EAA's team, which will include representatives from the flight instruction and flight test communities, academia, data analysis experts, and others, will collaborate with the FAA to submit recommendations to the agency.
