NTSB to Share Lessons Learned From Aviation Investigations at AirVenture Presentations


National Transportation Safety Board investigators and leaders — including Member Michael Graham — will attend EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2022 to meet the public and provide a series of safety presentations.

The A330neo’s flight crew all come with impressive backgrounds and took different paths in their careers:

“We look for every opportunity to advocate for aviation safety, and this event, the nation’s largest gathering of aviation enthusiasts, is a fantastic opportunity to share our safety recommendations,” said NTSB Chair Jennifer Homendy. “We need all parts of the aviation industry engaged to make our skies safer.”

While on-site, NTSB air safety investigators will deliver the agency’s “Fly Like a Pro” safety presentation series on Friday, July 29. Organized around the theme of pilot professionalism, the series will help attendees implement a safety-first culture, which includes a commitment to continuous improvement in flying proficiency. Sean Elliott, EAA’s vice president of advocacy and safety, will be moderating the “Fly Like a Pro” presentation, while EAA board members Charlie Precourt and Michael Goulian will also be part of the panel.

Presentations are based on lessons learned from recent NTSB accident investigations and include a range of topics, including in-flight loss of control, aviation weather, flight instruction, managing aeromedical risks, air traffic control communications, and airplane occupant protection systems.

In addition, on Thursday, July 28, NTSB chief data scientist Dr. Loren Groff will be demonstrating how to get the most out of the agency’s aviation accident database, CAROL. He will also be soliciting feedback from current users of the database as part of the NTSB’s commitment to continuously improving the system’s functionality.

The investigators presenting will also be staffing the NTSB exhibit booth in the International Federal Pavilion, located in Exhibit Hangar D, to meet the public and answer questions about investigations and processes, the agency’s mission, and careers at NTSB.

The NTSB began its participation at AirVenture in 1995 and has had a presence there most years since then, but this is the first time the NTSB has returned to AirVenture since the COVID-19 pandemic began.

NTSB resources regarding AirVenture, including a safety alert for pilots flying in to the event, a map showing the location of the NTSB exhibit, and the complete schedule of NTSB presentations are available at NTSB.gov.
