The National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) will host the annual Single-Pilot Safety Standdown Oct. 5-6, 2020, in an all-new virtual setting.

The free event, part of the association’s Week of Aviation Excellence, will bring world-class expertise to pilots “pursuing mastery of their aircraft and top performance at all times,” NBAA officials said.

The Standdown kicks off Monday, Oct. 5, at 11 a.m. (EDT) with “The Quest for Mastery.”

Also slated for Oct. 5 is “Ambiguous Cockpit Indications,” focused on what to do when instrumentation and aircraft indications don’t line up. It includes a walk through of a scenario involving an iced-over Angle of Attack indicator. Interactive discussion and videos will show pilots how to work through a similar situation in their aircraft.

Tuesday, Oct. 6, opens with “Excellence on Approach,” with NBAA officials promising that experts will tell you “how to execute a stable approach and avoid becoming a statistic.”

That will be followed by “Options for Success and Keynote: Flight Operations Leadership and Lessons from a Single-Pilot Accident.” During this presentation the American Bonanza Society’s Tom Turner will walk through a real-world, stress-filled flight to highlight the importance of standard operating procedures and preflight and contingency planning.

Cirrus Aircraft’s Todd Simmons will then share his experiences as a personal and business aviator, and how a culture of safety shapes his company. Sharing lessons he learned from a personal aircraft accident as the pilot-in-command, Simmons will explain how those insights have reinforced a companywide commitment to single-pilot safety.
