    SFBAA Safety Day

    The SFBAA will be hosting a Safety Day on Friday, February 24th, from 10am to 3pm at the Sheltair FBO at Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood International Airport (FLL).

    Participants will view a live demonstration from the US Coast Guard on their rescue procedures as well as view their aircraft.  In addition, we have selected three expert speakers to help create a day-long seminar on the value and best practices of corporate aviation safety.  

    Lunch will be provided by Air Culinaire and NBAA CAM credit is currently pending approval.

    GREG FEITH has worked as a Safety and Security Consultant and an expert witness. Many industries benefit from the lessons that have been learned in aviation about human factors. With 20 years with the NTSB, Greg was Senior Air Safety Investigator on many high profile air disaster investigations including the 1996 Valujet crash in the Florida Everglades, the 1997 controlled flight into terrain (CFIT) accident in Guam involving a Korean Air Boeing 747-300, the 1994 American Eagle ATR 72 crash in Roselawn and numerous others. He is ATP rated with over 2,800 hours of flight time. To aid in the investigations, Greg has attended a surprising number of flight and ground schools and training classes on various equipment. "Lessons Learned" was developed utilizing his firsthand knowledge from thousands of accident investigations. Taking the lessons from mistakes that result in accidents, and utilizing his investigator perspective, the message provides a unique and thought-provoking perspective on how we can do a better job of enhancing safety in aviation. This information will hopefully prevent the same errors from being repeated, and provide an understanding of the human factors elements inherent to the causes of most accidents. As a self-proclaimed Evangelist for Aviation Safety, Feith speaks about risks and hot issues that compromise flight safety in both GA and airline industry. He can be seen regularly as a Safety and Security Expert on NBC, MSNBC as well as History Channel, and PBS. Greg can be seen on a number of television shows including Secret of the Black Box, Why Airplanes Crash, Mayday, Seconds from Disaster, Survival in the Sky and others.

    CATHERINE FISH has taught thousands of entertaining aviation safety courses throughout the United States and Europe. Her unusual and hilarious aviation stories get the audience laughing in Flying Fish's Wild, Wacky & Outrageous Pilot Whoppers.  Flying since 1973, she is a certified single-engine, multi-engine and instrument flight instructor. Her more than 6,000 hours of flight time includes flying for a commuter airline, flying as a USDA contract pilot and teaching 300 students how to fly. Cathe was a Professor of Aviation Technology at Cochise College for five years. She has been an AOPA Air Safety Foundation favorite lead instructor since 1983. Cathe has taught more Flight Instructor Revalidation Clinics than anyone alive. Her motivating seminars are upbeat and fun with lots of useful flying information, earning encore engagements with many groups.

    DAVID SOUCIE has worked with the FAA as a member of the Safety Management Implementation (SMI) Committee, the System Approach for Safety Oversight in Washington D.C. and continues to participate in the FAA Safety Management Systems Focus Group. Previously, he was an FAA maintenance aviation safety inspector and at the FAA and the senior director of technical services for Air Methods, Inc., now one of the largest helicopter emergency medical operations in the world. Dave's years of experience have led Dave to become an impassioned consultant and speaker on the topic of aviation safety and human factors in management. He has taken leading roles in the design and development of several national safety programs including the congressionally mandated Nexgen. In his book, Why Planes Crash: An Accident Investigator Fights for Safe Skies, Dave emphasizes that safety choices are always about balancing lives against financial liabilities, jobs, and livelihoods. As a young airplane mechanic he discovered that feeling safe overshadowed his ability to recognize both threats and opportunities. Through dramatic personal stories of success, tragedy and defeat he makes a compelling plea to safety professionals and corporate executives to awaken their "Risk IQ." His topic: Dare to REPAIR Your Thinking will renew your innate capability to see into what has become clouded by complacency and see threats and opportunities that are hidden in plain view. David is also an on screen aviation consultant for CNN.
