Loss of Control in Homebuilts Program Video

January 17, 2019 - In this special presentation from the Pilot Proficiency Center (PPC) at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2018, a panel of aviation safety experts discuss loss of control (LOC) accidents in homebuilts. LOC is the leading cause of fatalities across all of aviation, but is particularly prevalent in amateur-built aircraft. Air show performer Michael Goulian, EAA Vice Chairman of the Board Charlie Precourt, Kitplanes magazine Editor-in-Chief Paul Dye, and Lancair Owners and Builders Organization President Jeff Edwards discuss why in a presentation hosted by EAA Safety Committee members Joe Brown and Wally Anderson.

The presentation also introduces several custom-made scenarios for the PPC’s Redbird flight simulators, training pilots to recognize and react to loss of control in flight. Flight simulators are a great way to practice challenging scenarios in a safe but realistic environment. To find a Redbird simulator near you, visit the Redbird Flight Simulations website.
