Boca Raton Pilots Association Monthly Meeting: Why Good Pilots Make Bad Decisions with Richard McSpadden
No pilot sets out on a flight seeking calamity. Unfortunately (and particularly in General Aviation), all too often what starts out as a routine flight somehow turns into something that at best, scares the dickens out of us, or at worst, damages people or property. ASI Executive Director Richard McSpadden will review recent accidents, the elements surrounding them, and discuss why good pilots made bad decisions.

Richard McSpadden was appointed executive director of the AOPA Air Safety Institute February 2017 and was promoted to senior vice president in July 2020. He currently leads a team of certified flight instructors and content creators who develop and distribute aviation safety material –free of charge— in order to advance general aviation safety industry-wide.

ASI distributes material through a dedicated YouTube channel, iTunes podcasts, Facebook, and a dynamic website. ASI material is accessed 12 million times annually.

Registration is NOT required. The Boca Raton Pilots Association meeting is free to all. We will start at 6:30PM with pizza, drinks and socializing, followed by our speaker at 7:00 PM. There will be time for questions and answers after our speaker. We meet monthly, the first Wednesday of every month except July, August and December. In December instead of our monthly meeting we hold a holiday event.
