In this IIL aviation webinar, Al Seymour talks about the different organisations and levels of scrutiny for aircraft production and operation and will focus on the broad ‘amateur builder and operator’ community.
Globally, the amateur home-built aircraft community is very large. There are widely varying standards of build quality, ranging from remarkable and innovative, to dangerous. Governance of engineering checks and test flying also varies widely.
Cases studies will be discussed to highlight where the risks are and who ‘owns’ them. Consideration of risks to life and property will be discussed and where potential exists to identify them early and mitigate them as the unforeseen impacts of even the smallest errors can mount up to result in dramatic outcomes that are costly in all respects.
In this talk, you will learn what could be done better to decrease overall risks to make this an affordable activity for builder operators and insurers alike.
