Flight Chain App updated with new accident case studies

The Flight Chain App has been updated, including new accident case studies on the blog AheadOfThePowerCurve.com.

It’s another step in Flight Chain App’s continued effort to make it easier for pilots to learn from accident chains and NTSB reports, according to company officials.


Beginning with its version 1.15 app release on March 8, 2021, Flight Chain App now fully supports Dark Mode for iOS.

“2020 was a crazy year to get through for everyone. But as we get into 2021 and things start to stabilize a bit, we wanted to get back on the development track and make sure Flight Chain App can properly honor the Display & Brightness preference the user has chosen for their iPhone and iPad,” said Dan Sobczak, founder of Flight Chain App.

“We also wanted to make sure we’ve added improvements as needed to ensure the app continues to meet Apple’s new privacy changes with iOS 14,” Sobczak added.

Throughout 2020 and into 2021, Flight Chain App and its Ahead Of The Power Curve blog continues to feature accident case studies in both general and commercial aviation.

“Our goal with accident case studies is not only to answer the question ‘how did this happen?’ Sobczak said. “More importantly, we want to explore what the critical decision points in the accident chain were that lead to the accident.”

“By exploring those decision points in the accident chain format, we hope these accident case studies can help pilots enhance their decision-making skills, and stay ahead of the power curve,” he added.
