Loss of Control – Root Causes and Innovation Opportunities - Part 2

Wed, Oct 30, 2019 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM CDT

Presenter: Loss of Control Committee Members

This webinar continues the discussion initiated at AirVenture and in the August 28th Webinar to deeply define the root causes of Loss of Control accidents. A wide-ranging root cause model developed by the webinar panelists reveals that reducing fatalities is a very multi-dimensional problem – there is no one “silver bullet” solution, but instead a range of diverse technical, regulatory, training, culture and behavioral challenges that must be met.

This second webinar, presented by the team of aviation and industry experts that created the root cause model, will first ground the participants in the different dimensions of it. Then, members of the team will discuss the many open areas for innovation in the second of two parts of the model that still exist beyond those already known or proposed. Topics that will be covered in this webinar are Aircraft Systems and Aerodynamics, Failure to Regain Aircraft Control, and the Physics of Impacts.

This webinar intends to stimulate the innovative spirit of the EAA and broader aviation community to create novel, effective and implementable solutions to this persistent challenge of LOC accidents and fatalities. The presenters in this second webinar will be Dave Morss – Test pilot and Air Racer, Andy Mogensen, Astronaut and member of the European Space Agency, Bryan Lynch, Pilot and CTO of Reliant Heart and Robert Orlean, Pilot and President of Orlean Technical Solutions.
