Playing the U.K. 'Slottery' When Flying to London


Business aviation in the U.K. represents 7.2 percent of total flight activity and more than 8 billion euros in overall economic impact, but increasingly, economic pressure on airports to accommodate low-cost air carrier operations threatens to squeeze business aircraft out of key airports, especially airports around London. For guidance on how operators should proceed when flying into London airports, read the March/April 2018 edition of Business Aviation Insider, the International Issue.

New Items on NBAA's List of Top Safety Focus Areas


NBAA's Safety Committee annually examines the top safety issues facing business aviation and compiles resources for operators and flight departments to use in combating these problems. In 2018, there were several new items added to the list, including workforce competency and staffing. "This is an area that is of great concern," said Safety Committee Chair Dave Ryan. "From a safety standpoint, it certainly increases distractions for management, it puts a lot of pressure on the existing pilots who lose teammates, maintenance personnel are also being lost and even scheduling has the burden of doing more with less." The list also includes some familiar issues, including runway excursions, single-pilot operations and loss of control in flight.

"NBAA applauds Congress for passing an FAA extension, which provides the agency needed resources to continue advancing our aviation system," said NBAA President and CEO Ed Bolen.

Fly Safe: Prevent Loss of Control Accidents


The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the general aviation (GA) communitys national #FlySafe campaign helps educate GA pilots about the best practices to calculate and predict aircraft performance and to operate within established aircraft limitations. A Loss of Control (LOC) accident involves an unintended departure of an aircraft from controlled flight. LOC can happen when the aircraft enters a flight regime that is outside its normal flight envelope and quickly develops into a stall or spin. It can introduce an element of surprise for the pilot. Prepare, Prepare, PrepareEvery time you take flight, you need to be ready for the unexpected. Engine failures, inflight emergencies and other problems come up when you least expect them. However, if you train for these mishaps, your chances of survival increases. TheGeneral Aviation Joint Steering Committee (GAJSC) recommends every pilot undergo emergency procedures training. This type of training puts pilots in realistic, complex situations. Multi-Engine MadnessLets look at an example from a multi-engine airplane: engine loss on takeoff. Your aircraft is climbing and the critical engine fails. With climb altitude and airspeed, youre close to minimum control speed (Vmc). Any reduction in speed or increase in angle of attack will likely put you into an un-commanded yaw and roll toward the inoperative engine. Losing an engine en-route or on approach is less critical because youll likely have more airspeed and more altitude to deal with. But, what if you have to go around? Single-engine go-arounds in light twins often dont go well. They should be avoided, if possible. Another thought: while engine failure on a twin represents a 50 percent loss of power, it can result in as much as an 80 percent loss of performance. Plan for these types of emergencies. Practice your response. Your ability to react will improve dramatically, and youll be glad you did!… Read more ...
