Fly The Aircraft First
Speaker: Joseph Mollahan, FAASTeam Program Manager - Operations
NTSB accident data suggest that pilots, while distracted by less essential tasking, have lost control of their aircraft and crashed. In light of this pilots are reminded to maintain aircraft control at all times. This may mean delay in responding to ATC communications and passenger requests or not responding at all unless positive aircraft can be maintained throughout. In other words, Fly the Aircraft First!
We are going to discuss how distractions on the ground and in flight can have serious consequences.
