April 21st, 2021 at 8:00 PM Eastern: "The ABCs of FAA Endorsement Actions" presented by Edward Page, CFII, AGI, IGI, Attorney

This presentation focuses on the FAA’s legal response to aviation incidents, accidents, and occurrences (pilot deviations) and the pilot’s rights and obligations in this process. Ed will teach CFIs and pilots when and how to respond to an FAA inquiry after a pilot deviation, the Aviation Safety Reporting System, the timely reporting to NASA about the pilot deviation, and how that NASA report helps the pilot.

Viewers will have an understanding of the FAA’s compliance action program, the FAA’s options in response to a pilot deviation, and timely filing an NTSB report if there is an accident that involves substantial damage to the aircraft. We will also cover dealing with insurance companies both during and after the incident, remedial training agreements, and the pilot’s records at the FAA.
