A:In addition to having a student pilot's certificate and appropriate signoffs for the flight involved, insurance carriers want students going on solo flights to be under the direct supervision of a certified flight instructor. Generally that means a CFIG must have evaluated the student, the aircraft, the airport conditions, and the intended flight just prior to departure. To do that the CFIG must be on site, not at home, not at work, and not flying above the airport.
FAA Safety Team | Safer Skies Through Education New NTSB Safety Alerts Notice Number: NOTC4630 In case you missed the announcement, here is the press release from the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) announcing the publication of five additional Safety Alerts for pilots and mechanics. Today, March 12, 2013, the National Transportation Safety Board issued five Safety Alerts that focus on the most frequent types of general aviation accidents. “Because we investigate each of the 1,500 GA accidents that occur in the United States every year, we see the same types of accidents over and over again,” said NTSB Chairman Deborah A.P. Hersman. “What’s especially tragic is that so many of these accidents are entirely preventable.” Each year, about 475 pilots and passengers are killed and hundreds more are seriously injured in GA accidents in the United States, which is why GA Safety is on the NTSB’s Most Wanted List. (http://go.usa.gov/28DF)http://go.usa.gov/28DF A Safety Alert is a brief information sheet that pinpoints a particular safety hazard and offers practical remedies to address the issue. Three of the Safety Alerts focus on topics related to some of the most common defining events for fatal GA accidents. These include low-altitude stalls, spatial disorientation and controlled flight into terrain, and mechanical problems. The other two Safety Alerts address risk mitigation. The five Safety Alerts issued today are: Is Your Aircraft Talking to You? Listen! Reduced Visual References Require Vigilance Avoid Aerodynamic Stalls at Low Altitude Mechanics: Manage Risks to Ensure Safety Pilots: Manage Risks to Ensure Safety The NTSB is creating five short videos – one for each Safety Alert – which will be rolled out this spring. The videos will feature regional air safety investigators sharing their experiences and observations of the many accident investigations they conducted as well as advice on how pilots and mechanics can avoid mistakes that can have such tragic consequences. "GA is essentially an airline or maintenance operation of one, which puts the responsibility for sound decision making on one person’s shoulders," Hersman said. "We are promoting and distributing the alerts to reach pilots and mechanics who can benefit from these lifesaving messages.” The five Safety Alerts approved today, as well as others that have been issued since 2004, are available at The presentations investigators made to the Board today are all available at

FAA Safety Team | Safer Skies Through Education "Chart Challenge" Topic: Chart Challenge On Monday, March 25, 2013 at 7:00 PM Location: Marriott at Eagle Crest 1275 South Huron Street Ypsilanti, MI Select Number: NR Description: What would we do without charts? They're one of the most fundamental parts of flying--but they can also be challenging to interpret, difficult to read, and sometimes head-scratchingly confusing. Our new live seminar is meant to help you master them. Based on our popular "Chart Challenge" series of online courses, it's a refresher clinic where you, the audience member, get to put your knowledge to the test. We'll quiz you on everything from VFR sectionals to instrument approach plates, and dig into the practical issues that come with them.
