Aero-TV: Safety Tip of the Week – Tom Turner, Avoiding Landing Gear Mishaps

Turner Describes Some of the Most Common Gear-Related Accidents

Tom Turner, Manager of Technical Services for the American Bonanza Society and leading instructor for FlightSafety, Bonanza’s international pilot training program, has dedicated significant effort to understanding what factors lead to simple, but dangerous piloting mistakes.

As a Master CFI and renown safety expert, Tom Turner holds a Masters Degree in Aviation Safety.  With over 3,500 hours in the air, including over 2,200 hours as an instructor, Turner spends his time lecturing and instructing across the country on aviation safety.

Using the past week’s aircraft mishap reports, Turner reflects upon various circumstances that might have contributed to such accidents. 

His mission remains simple, yet invaluable to pilots worldwide:  to increase awareness and provide crucial learning opportunities so that readers can make better decisions if facing similar circumstances.
