Learning from accident trends

Reading accident reports and looking for trends can help prevent future accidents. Viewing NTSB reports by trend can help you know when accidents are likely to happen so you can improve your decision-making skills.

We were surprised by a flight instructor's observation who, after more than 40 years of flying, was amazed at how many pilots of various experience levels aren't aware of the value of NTSB reports.

Flight Chain App makes your flying life easier by giving you accident information that's quicker to digest, so you have more time to devote to flying. More convenient and less frustrating. For both you and your iOS device.
