Roberto Lim, founder and moving spirit of the Air Safety Foundation, Inc.
Some Number Crunching When it comes to analyzing the causes and results of general aviation accidents, few organizations, if any, do it better than the AOPA Air Safety Foundation {AOPA/ASF).
Without those sensors, according to the AOPA Air Safety Foundation, conditions depriving "the pilot of natural, visual references to maintain orientation, such as clouds, fog, haze, darkness, terrain or sky backgrounds with indistinct contrast (such as arctic whiteout or clear, moonless skies over water) can rapidly cause spatial disorientation."
Takeoff and initial climb accidents are 10 times more deadly than landing accidents, according to the AOPA Air Safety Foundation (ASF) presentation "Mastering Takeoffs and Landings." And, when you think about it, the ASF's numbers make sense.
The AOPA Air Safety Foundation raises a pertinent question: "Will you really be able to squeeze "'book' performance out of a tired, 30-year-old [aircraft]?" Instead, AOPA/ASF recommends "adding 50 percent to the POH takeoff ...
The AOPA Air Safety Foundation found that 27 percent of the fatal accidents over a recent, 10-year period occurred during the maneuvering phase of flight.
This month's audiocast features an interview with Bruce Landsberg, executive director of the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association's Air Safety Foundation.
According to the AOPA Air Safety Foundation's 2006 Nall Report, 16.2 percent of all accidents and 7.5 percent of fatal accidents in 2005 were traced to a cause involving mechanical failure or improper maintenance.
Accident Causes--Mechanical/Maintenance Fatal Total Engine/Prop 68.2% 44.8% Landing Gear/Brakers 0% 20.7% Fuel System 0% 15.5% Controls/Airframe 22.7% 8.2% Electrical/Ignition 0% 3.9% Oil System 9.1% 6.9% Accident Trend-Mechanical/Maintenance Fatal 1999 16.0% 2000 17.1% 2001 14.2% 2002 18.1% 2003 14.9% 2004 15.6% 2005 16.2% Source: AOPA Air Safety Foundation Note: Table made from bar graph.
Some answers may be found in the AOPA Air Safety Foundation's annual Nall Report, a detailed summary of GA accidents and examination of observed trends from year to year.
GA Accidents, 2004 Major Cause All Accidents Fatal Accidents Pilot 1067 (75.5%) 228 (78.6%) Mechanical 221 (15.6%) 29 (10.0%) Other/Unknown 125 (8.8%) 33 (11.4%) Totals 1413 290 Source: AOPA Air Safety Foundation RELATED ARTICLE: The FAA's approach.
according to the AOPA Air Safety Foundation's (ASF) latest interpretation of general aviation accidents, otherwise known as the Nall Report, pilots who engage in low-level maneuvers (and flight into worsening weather) are still getting themselves killed with remarkable regularity.
