FAA TV – Owner Maintenance and the Startle Response


posted in

Surprise Surprise is a 4-part program based on a composite of GA [General Aviation] incidents involving pilot responses to system/component failures. The program explains the hazards associated with owner/operator performed aircraft maintenance, introduces Startle Response to emergent situations, and reviews good and bad examples of ADM [aeronautical Decision-Making] & risk management. The topic aligns with GAJSC [General Aviation Joint Steering Committee] findings with respect to system/component failures and inadequate pilot performance in forced landing scenarios.

Each Chapter is a 5-12 minute video
