Many Aircraft Accidents are not Accidental At All

SPEAKER:  Steve Bateman, CFI, LSRM, PhD, AOPA

This presentation will move beyond the academic and nebulous notion of “Human Factors” and face head-on some hard realities about how we, pilots and mechanics, are The Human Factor that stands in the way of heightened performance and the related reduction of accidents.

Based on published data involving decades of study, Steve will make the bold claim that the majority of general aviation accidents are not "accidental" at all.  In fact, it will be argued, both the number and classification of future occurrences can be predicted with a high degree of accuracy, so how can they be called accidental?


Steve leads the Flying Clubs Initiative, which helps start, grow, and sustain flying clubs nationwide. He started flying as a teenager in England and has flown in the UK, USA, Australia, and Canada.  Prior to AOPA, Steve owned and operated a flight school and before that had a fun career in high tech, in Silicon Valley, California, and before that was a university professor in England.

An active AOPA staff CFI and check pilot, Steve is also a Lead Representative for the FAASTeam, Portland, Oregon, FSDO.

Steve holds a Ph.D. in Electronic Engineering and is a Chartered Electrical Engineer. 

He lives in Redmond, Oregon.
