As you may know, aircraft loss of control now accounts for more worldwide passenger deaths than any other single factor.
This alarming new trend occurs when a presumably well trained flight crew fails to control a mechanically and structurally sound aircraft that encounters an inflight condition which causes an unexpected aircraft upset. Such an event requires immediate and skilled action on the part of the pilot to recover the aircraft and prevent a catastrophe.
Facts typically point to a lack of proper pilot training as the leading cause of these accidents. That is why Congress, the FAA and others are now requiring new standards for pilot training to include upset recognition and recovery training, skills which can only be fully developed in actual flight conditions, not simulators.
We don’t believe the flying public would want to fly in an aircraft where the flight crew lacked such training nor should they.
Flight Research, Inc. is the Global leader in providing upset recognition and recovery training in actual jet aircraft and we are pleased to announce our recent partnership with QBE a leading aviation underwriter.
