Notice Number: NOTC2999

Nearly one-third of all fatal accidents occur during maneuvering flight, in part because maneuvering at low altitude limits the amount of time a pilot has to recover.

other family members sat, waiting for results we could not help but noticed how

Passenger Brief part 2

     Throughout my training I believe the one thing my instructor imbedded in my head and sometimes on the back of it was air speed, air speed, air speed. Out of all the areas of training I went through I can honestly say I don’t remember very much if any talk of a proper “Passenger Brief”.
