Flight Chain App's Safety Quiz makes it easier for pilots to learn from NTSB accident reports. By reviewing accident reports and understanding the lessons learned from them, you can stay ahead of the power curve.
The vast majority of accidents are preventable. By reading accident reports, you'll learn what not to do. And you'll be a safer pilot because of it.
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.
