The path for absolute airmanship is a long and steady process that involves acquiring the necessary knowledge, skills and having the proper attitude of being a professional airline pilot. 
Sharing knowledge and experience enhances flight safety. In this space you can find safety analysis about major issues affecting commercial aviation and accident analysis with the objective of avoiding recurrence.

Welcome aboard.

One of the main European Flight Safety events is the Flightglobal Safety Symposium taking place in London, UK. We are happy to make our presence again this year with the topic of Aeronautical Decision-Making: Looking Inside and Ahead. The symposium takes place at the Radisson Blue Edwardian, London-Heathrow on the 13th and 14th of September. ​For registration and updates visit: www.flightglobalevents.com



The 30th Flight Operational Forum Norway was a great success with the participation of key stakeholders in aviation safety and the incredible account of Capt. Robert Piché on the Air Transat 236 event.

We are present at the 30th Flight Operational Forum Norway, that will take place next April in Oslo. This year the topic is about Aeronautical Decision-Making. The heuristics of DCM will be analysed and traditional models such as FORDEC will be compared against new Intuitive models. Making sound decisions at the right time is essential during critical situations, so we'll look inside, that is the cognitive processes taking place for pilots making decisions and ahead on what the aviation industry needs to develop and foster on this very important topic of airmanship. 
Last October, it was a great experience in Almaty participating on the seminar "Proactive Safety: From Theory to Practice where the " Lessons Learned on the Turkish Airlines 1951 Accident" was presented. 

Well done to Air Astana for these initiatives in promoting their corporate culture of flight safety!
