The National Transportation Safety Board has released the first of five short videos, each featuring an NTSB investigator highlighting a particular area of general aviation safety associated with the majority of GA accidents. The Video Safety Alerts address risk management and decision-making, maintenance issues for pilots and mechanics, flight in reduced-visibility conditions, and low-altitude stalls.
