Accidents and Incidents

While i don’t really want to dwell on the fact that any flying can be dangerous, I have found myself looking at microlight crash videos to try and understand what can happen, what causes it, and what lessons can be learned. Personally I think its very very important to keep remembering that things can go wrong.  Keeping it in mind should make us better pilots.

Bill, my instructor told me that most accidents happen when the pilot exceeds either the aircraft or the pilots capabilities. If you fly the way you are supposed to, then you are cutting out a lot of the risk.

I have found that looking at these videos helps me stop becoming complacent, and realise the responsibilities that we have when we fly…  Don’t dwell on them – learn 🙂
