Clear the Punchlist | A call to action to collaborate, address, and close open NTSB recommendations

Posted by Admin

When a fatal aviation accident occurs, the tragedy takes a terrible toll on more lives than one can imagine. Not only are the lives of the victims lost, but the collateral damage heaped on hundreds of family members, friends, coworkers, and industry stakeholders is similarly devastating. Meanwhile, the in-depth and arduous efforts of the NTSB, FAA, involved parties, and other global aviation accident investigators have just begun. Their work comprises thousands of hours of investigating, interviewing, researching, and documenting the fruits of their efforts in a preliminary and final report. A report focused on telling us what happened, why, and how we can prevent it from happening again. The prevention component may include targeted recommendations emphasizing more urgent or critical actions that should take place to avoid a repeat event or address other deficiencies discovered during the investigation.  [Read More...]

Flight Training in Today’s Simulated World

Posted by Admin

As the quality and cost of flight simulation decreases, the regulatory limitations on its use within the flight training industry remain stagnant. Looking much like it did decades ago, the credits offered on the use of simulation provide very little in the way of aeronautical decision-making (ADM) and focus on simulation versus flight-hour credits on limited aircraft-based maneuvers. Does this maneuver, credit-based simulation model truly capture the capabilities of the flight training simulation available today?  [Read More...]

Networking: Turning contacts into career catalysts

Posted by Admin

The true value of networking and forging meaningful connections is immeasurable. In the beginning of my career I believed I had a clear vision of my professional path, but as I progressed, numerous unforeseen opportunities presented themselves. I attribute a significant portion of my success to the individuals who offered guidance and illuminated new avenues for me. As an introvert, the prospect of reaching out, building networks, and seeking advice was initially overwhelming. Even now it presents its challenges, but I have come to realize that networking is more than a skill, but a crucial catalyst for growth and success unlocking doors to possibilities I never knew existed.

Maintenance Minute - March 2024 | Rules, Regs & Norms?

Posted by Admin

Recently I was eavesdropping on a conversation at a trade show. One pilot asked another pilot an incredibly important question...  “Do you fly by the rules or by the norms?” I was taken aback by the depth of the question. Needless to say, a very necessary, extensive, and honest conversation followed. Thinking about that question, of course, I applied it to aircraft maintenance. “Do we maintain aircraft by the rules or by the norms?”  This pilot was referring to company rules, but what if he had asked the other pilot if he flew the regulations or the norms.
