WASHINGTON – The National Transportation Safety Board will meet to consider five Safety Alerts aimed at reducing the number of general aviation accidents. A Safety Alert is a brief information sheet that pinpoints a particular safety issue and offers practical remedies to address the hazard.

Each year the NTSB investigates about 1500 GA accidents in which about 475 pilots and passengers are killed and hundreds more are seriously injured.

The safety issue areas under consideration at the Board meeting will include:

  • Reduced-visual-reference accidents, including controlled flight into terrain and uncontrolled descent to the ground due to spatial disorientation
  • Aerodynamic stalls at low altitude in daylight visual weather conditions
  • Pilot inattention to indications of mechanical problems
  • Risk management for aviation maintenance technicians
  • Risk management for pilots
