APG 134 – NTSB, Hypoxia, Turbulence
Play

It’s been a busy week at the APG Newsroom! We started the week with yet another crash that may be linked to hypoxia, and I decided to spend a little time discussing it, as well as emphasizing the importance of recognizing impairment and acting quickly.

On Tuesday, the NTSB met to issue their findings on the crash of UPS 1354 in Birmingham, AL a year ago August. Bottom line: Human error. I hosted a Google Hangout On Air Tuesday morning to watch the board meeting, and several APG community members were able to participate!

We discuss other news as well, including the crash of a Cessna 421C medical flight in New Mexico August 27. Seems the plane was refueled with Jet A instead of 100LL Avgas.
