New FAA Safety Briefing Focuses on Handling Abnormal Situations

Now available online, the November/December 2010 issue of FAA Safety Briefing <http://www.faa.gov/news/safety_briefing/>  focuses on a subject fundamental to pilot safety: how to handle abnormal and emergency situations. The issue stresses the delicate art of planning for the unplanned and outlines several tools and resources pilots can draw upon to handle emergencies.
 
Articles provide tips on unusual attitude recovery, partial-power takeoffs, and knowing what to do when your aircraft’s electrical system fails. The article in the “Hot Spots” section highlights the work FAA has been doing to identify the leading causes of GA fatal accidents. For Aviation Maintenance Technicians, the article in the “Nuts, Bolts, and Electrons” section explains the Service Difficulty Reporting System and encourages AMTs to use it.
