Adam Posted August 11, 2016 Report Share Posted August 11, 2016 AOPA just sent me the 25th Nall Report on GA Safety. Thought I'd share for those interested in accident statistics and trends. Date: August 11, 2016 at 1:57:14 PM PDTSubject: Hat in the Ring Society Release: 25th Joseph T. Nall Report The AOPA Foundation is pleased to provide you with the 25thJoseph T. Nall Report released hours ago. This is a detailed look at general aviation (GA) accidents involving helicopters and fixed-wing aircraft weighing less than 12,500 pounds. The objective of publishing this is to help pilots, flight instructors and the industry understand the problems and address them appropriately. The rate of non-commercial fixed-wing accidents fell 12 percent in 2013, including an 18 percent decrease in the rate of fatal accidents. These are by far the most dramatic improvements in the 25-year history of the Nall Report and mark the first time that sector’s fatal accident rate has dropped below the threshold of one per 100,000 flight hours. The report is available as a free download at https://www.aopa.org/training-and-safety/air-safety-institute/accident-analysis/joseph-t-nall-report Support from individual pilot donors and our corporate sponsors made this project possible and their support is gratefully acknowledged. We are most appreciative of the close working relationship with the FAA and NTSB to gather these statistics. GA pilots are currently using ASI safety products in record numbers with 30,000 online course completions and thousands of safety quiz completions every month. The future GA safety record depends on well-informed pilots so please visit the safety section of the Foundation’s website at www.airsafetyinstitute.org to see the latest online courses and publications. Your comments and suggestions are always appreciated to help us improve next year’s report. We look forward to receiving them. Thank you for being a Hat in the Ring Society member! Best, Justin W.
