"Energy Management and Avoiding Loss of Control" Topic: Preventing loss of control through application of energy management principles. On Wednesday, June 21, 2017 at 17:00 Arizona Location: Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University 3700 Willow Creek Road Bldg. 20 - DLC Auditorium Prescott, AZ 86301
Select Number: WP0776708
Under the Airman Certification Standards (ACS), the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has mandated that private and commercial pilot applicants demonstrate understanding of energy management in several areas of operation. Poor management of the energy associated with vertical flight path and/or airspeed is a significant factor in loss of control in-flight and runway excursions during landing, two leading causes of accidents in aviation. Beyond the basic principles of altitude-airspeed exchange, this seminar will also present energy principles, control rules, and error management skills for safely and effectively handling the airplane’s energy state—total energy and its distribution over altitude and airspeed. Attendees will gain knowledge and tools to confront the root causes of the problem, and will be better equipped to avoid a loss of control event.
