WASHINGTON – National Transportation Safety Board Member Earl Weener and NTSB senior aviation investigators will participate at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2014, the Experimental Aircraft Association’s annual fly-in convention in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, on July 28 – August 3.

General aviation accidents account for the majority of aviation-related deaths in the United States and continue to be a safety priority for the NTSB. General aviation safety has been an issue area on the NTSB’s Most Wanted List since 2011, and numerous safety recommendations have been issued to address our safety concerns.

During the week-long event, Member Weener and NTSB staff will conduct presentations on accident case studies and lessons learned and various safety issues, including aeronautical decision-making and weather hazards for GA pilots, which is currently on the Most Wanted List. They will also meet with members of the public who visit the NTSB exhibit in the Federal Pavilion and will be featured on EAA Radio daily.

“Participation at the Oshkosh airshow has become a staple for NTSB investigators and staff,” said NTSB Acting Chairman Christopher A. Hart. “This annual event provides us with an extraordinary opportunity to meet face-to-face with a large number of general aviation pilots and share lessons learned from our investigations with the aviation community.”

In an effort to raise additional awareness, the NTSB has issued numerous safety alerts aimed at reducing accidents. Theses safety alerts include:

• Thunderstorm Encounters;
• In-Cockpit Next Generation Radar Mosaic Imagery;
• Prevent Aerodynamic Stalls at Low Altitude ;
• Reduce Visual References Require Vigilance; and
• Is Your Aircraft Talking to You? Listen!

Media requests for interviews with Member Weener or any of the NTSB staff should be emailed to Keith Holloway, NTSB Public Affairs Officer.
