Air Safety Institute Releases Nall Report

Monday, March 14, 2011 @ 10:00 AM

The AOPA's Air Safety Institute released its 2010 version of the Nall Report which summarizes aviation accidents that occurred during the previous year. While there is good news about general aviation operations in 2010,  the report notes areas of concern for GA as well.  The Nall Report is dedicated to the memory of Joseph T. Nall, an NTSB Board member who died as a passenger in an airplane accident in Caracas, Venezuela, in 1989. 

The founding principle of iFlightPlanner.com is to offer a flight planning environment that promotes safety and efficiency.  By making often overlooked tasks, like retrieving a certfied weather brief, computing weight & balance, or filing a flight plan as easy as possible, we will continue to help our pilots make a difference in aviation safety.

LiveATC.net, the premier source for live Air Traffic Control feeds on the web, has updated its LiveATC Air Radio app on iTunes!  The latest release brings the app up to v1.7.2 which fixes a few known bugs, but moreso sets the stage for the upcoming release of v1.8.0.  There are also reports of an Android app in the final stages of development that is soon to enter private BETA testing.

iFlightPlanner.com users have access to LiveATC.net feeds directly from our Airport/Facility Directory, and have an opportunity to help build the LiveATC network by volunteering their idle scanner to stream live audio from their home airport!
