Please join EAA Chapter 21 for its January, 2018 meeting entitled: "Why Do Pilots (Me Included) Do Dumb Things?"

The meeting will be held on Wednesday, January 10th beginning at 6:30 PM (social) and presentation/discussion at 7:00PM.

The evening will be spent reviewing and analyzing a sample of NTSB reports on piston-single production and experimental aircraft accidents and incidents. Many, as the title suggests, will leave you scratching your head asking "why?"

Whether or not you agree with the NTSB findings, these reports offer insight into the development of the accident-chain and accident analysis. They are also useful in reviewing our own habits (both good and bad) as it relates to both the circumstances, personal experiences, proficiency and qualifications of the pilot(s) and accident aircraft in question.

Below I've included the link to the NTSB aviation accident database. Please feel free to bring your own examples for the discussion.

See you on the 10th.

NOTE: You do not need to be a pilot to benefit. The reports include aero-medical factors, maintenance and repair issues, eyewitness/passenger accounts and post-accident determinations including metal fatigue, weather conditions, go/no-go decisions and outcomes, pilot proficiency/training, deferred maintenance decisions and consequences, etc.
