AOPA's Air Safety Institute Releases Avoiding Loc-G, First in Four-part Video Series

April 2, 2021

The Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association Air Safety Institute (ASI) released its first video, Avoiding LOC-G, in a new four-part series aimed at addressing the most predominant general aviation mishaps.

“This first installment of the four-part series explores why pilots lose control on the ground, also known as LOC-G,” said McSpadden. “Avoiding LOC-G investigates the different types of these loss-of-control issues, what’s likely causing them, and what pilots can do to prevent them.” The video asserts that discipline in maintaining positive control during approach, landing, and ground operations can save a lot of grief and money.

The remaining three episodes scheduled to release later this year include Avoiding Hard Landings, Avoiding Prop Strikes, and Avoiding Gear-Up Landings and Collapses. The series is sponsored by AssuredPartners Aerospace (APA) and the United States Aircraft Insurance Group (USAIG).
