WarbirdsNews has another great piece from Matt Jolley and Warbird Radio that we thought we would share with you this morning for Warbird Radio Favorite Friday! This week Matt Jolley will revisit a conversation about flight safety following the long hiatus winter maintenance. None of us like to consider our own mortality, which is why the subject is often ignored. It’s a statistically provable causality though that the longer we are away from aviation activities, whether it be walking on an airfield or flying the aircraft, the more likely we are to make a potentially costly mistake…..
Matt Jolley – Every March we like to focus on safety at WarbirdRadio.com. Spring always seems to see an increase in vintage military aircraft accidents as airplanes and pilots return to flying after a winter break. During our first year we decided to devote the entirety of March to the discussion of safer warbird operating techniques and best practices as learned from the finest minds in the business. The world’s largest warbird organization is the Commemorative Air Force and Robert Stenevick is tasked with the monumental challenge of maintaining the safety of their planes, pilots and crew. Mr. Stenevick serves as the Vice President of Safety/Maintenance/Operations. Hearing his story first hand covering the changes and challenges that he’s had in aviation safety along the way will provide valuable insight for any warbird operator or enthusiast. It’s a perfect Friday Favorite!
Until next week,
