Charlie Precourt

 

2016 ICAS Convention Closing Keynote Address delivered by former NASA Space Shuttle astronaut and U.S. Air Force fighter pilot, Charlie Precourt.

Precourt identifies and discusses examples of the normalization of deviation phenomenon within the general aviation and air show communities. This presentation was developed to be helpful to both performers and event organizers, and will discuss how the normalization of deviation impacts many different kinds of organizations, how to recognize when the phenomenon impacts your operation and what you can do to combat the potentially tragic impact of this very common safety problem.
