How can small and medium-sized operators use data to improve the safety of their operations and prevent accidents? It’s not as daunting – or as costly as it seems. In this special event, NTSB Vice Chairman Bruce Landsberg will moderate a roundtable discussion with experts from government and industry about the proven value of flight data monitoring (FDM) programs for any sized operation.
In this roundtable, you will learn how to incorporate FDM from others who have done it and find out what insights can be revealed to improve your operations. The expert panel will explore the impediments and obstacles to implementation and discuss real-world practical strategies and solutions. NTSB investigators will also discuss what they have learned from crashes where FDM could have made a difference.
The emphasis of this NTSB discussion will be on smaller operators, who may not have the resources of larger commercial flight departments, and how they can easily, affordably and practically incorporate FDM into their safety and operational activities.
The roundtable will be held immediately following NBAA’s National Safety Forum discussion in Room S210 ABC. The event will be open to the public and all NBAA-BACE attendees.
Requiring the use of recorders and encouraging flight data monitoring in all passenger-carrying operations is currently on the NTSB’s Most Wanted List. For more information or to register, visit www.ntsb.gov/fdmroundtable.
