AIN (Aviation International News) will be hosting an online webinar for pilots, on April 24, to learn about new avionics technology and discuss a shortage of pilots to fill flight decks.
Attendees can expect to learn about factors that are causing the flying landscape to shift towards more single-pilot operations, the kind of automation and technology manufacturers develop for single-pilot operations, how pilot training needs to improve to enhance single-pilot safety, and more.
Matt Thurber, editor-in-chief for AIN, will moderate the discussion alongside Tal Golan, manager of rotorcraft business development for Universal Avionics, and Charlie Precourt (pictured above), former NASA astronaut, safety expert, and Citation owner.
Avionics manufacturers are developing technology for safe single-pilot operations, as pilots have been flying alone safely in light aircraft through Part 23 jets for many years.
The free webinar will express the manufacturers’ perspective, forming a highly experienced light jet pilot, on what it takes for a single-pilot operation to be safe and efficient.
