The May/June 2016 issue of FAA Safety Briefing, New Technologies for Pilots, Planes, and ’Ports, is now available online. This issue features articles on the role technology plays in general aviation safety and what the FAA is doing to prepare for the future and make technology more useful. It also discusses some of the pitfalls of technology — including the ability to distract and disrupt decision-making skills.
In addition to technology-related Safety Enhancements in the GAJSC’s Loss of Control Work Group reports, look for new technology-related recommendations in the soon-to-be released System Component Failure — Powerplant report.
