The July/August 2018 issue of FAA Safety Briefing uses a Casablanca theme to address a serious and potentially deadly issue: the persistently consistent causes of GA safety mishaps. We “round up the usual suspects” in our feature articles, covering familiar safety topics like loss of control, weather, runway safety, and fuel management.

Feature articles cover:

  • Common causes of GA mishaps
  • Maintaining aircraft control
  • Avoiding wrong surface operations
  • Resisting the temptation of VFR into IMC
  • Managing instructional risk.

Aeromedical Advisory reviews the problem with synthetic opioid, and Condition Inspection explores the issues arising from Coronary Heart Disease (CHD). Jumpseat and Angle of Attack address the FAA’s compliance philosophy. Checklist offers information about GA Safety Enhancement Topic Sheets, and Postflight reviews the “game-changing” potential for the ACS. Vertically Speaking describes new helicopter safety enhancements for avoiding unintended IMC., while Nuts, Bolts, and Electrons discusses problems arising from improper torque.
