    Stop Talking About Aviation Safety! w/Tom Turner

    Stop Talking About Aviation Safety! w/Tom Turner

    Everyone thinks they are a safe pilot. Yet pilots continue to crash airplanes, for the same reasons again and again and again. As instructors, we’re not consistent in how we teach pilots to maximize their chances of an accident-free lifetime of flying. A shift in the way we teach safety concepts can make a huge difference in accident rates.
    Safety isn’t a strategy, it is an outcome. It is the result of developing and maintaining mastery and command of the airplane, the environment and yourself. This presentation goes far beyond telling pilots what not to do to avoid mishaps; it inspires positive motivation and provides specific techniques and ideas you can teach your students to use on every flight, so they can develop mastery and command for a lifetime of flying.
    Thomas P. Turner is an ATP and Flight Instructor with CFII and MEI ratings. A NAFI Flight Instructor Hall of Fame inductee, Tom has over 4,600 hours with 2,600 dual given, specializing in type-specific transition and recurrent training in high performance singles and light twins.
    He is the 2010 National FAA Safety Team Representative of the Year and the 2008 FAA Central Region CFI of the Year, and holds a Master’s Degree in Aviation Safety.
    Tom is Chairman of the Type Club Coalition Transition Training working group. In addition, he directs the education and safety arm of a 9,000-member pilots’ organization and publishes the free FLYING LESSONS Weekly blog at www.mastery-flight-training.com.

    Age-related changes in cognitive functions essential for flight include perceptual processing, some aspects of memory, and psychomotor control. Cognitive functions not clearly affected by age involve information processing, problem-solving, decision making, and time-sharing. Flight instructors must be able to assess the possible negative effects of aging and assist the older pilot in maintaining both proficiency and safety. We discuss how this can be done.
    Dr. Victor Vogel is a board-certified and fellowship-trained medical oncologist specializing in breast cancer prevention and treatment. He obtained his medical degree from Temple University School of Medicine, completed his residency at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center, and his fellowship in medical oncology at the Johns Hopkins Oncology Center. Dr. Vogel has also served as the National Vice President for Research at the American Cancer Society. He became a private pilot in 1980, progressing to CFI in 2019 and CFII in 2020. Dr. Vogel is also an AGI and IGI. He has owned a Beech Sierra in the past and most recently a Cirrus SR22 for the past 15 years. He has flown to 40 of the 50 states and serves as a FAASTeam Representative for the Harrisburg FSDO. He is a member of the IFR Magazine Editorial Board. Nearing retirement, Dr. Vogel plans to become a full-time flight instructor and is the founder of Susquehanna STEM to the Skies, an educational foundation that will utilize a full-motion advanced aviation training device as a means to introduce high school youth to aviation as a career opportunity.
