Podcast: New Hypoxia Training for TBM Owners »

In tightly knit pilot communities, an accident often has profound effects on the group because most people in it know the accident pilot. That was definitely the case with the Larry Glazer TBM accident in 2014, in which the pilot became unresponsive, apparently due to hypoxia, and overflew his destination, crashing at sea near Jamaica. As a direct result of that accident, a Florida-based company, in cooperation with Daher, is developing a hypoxia training program specifically for TBM owners. According to Dr. Ian Blair Fries, who is working with Dr. Paul Buza on the project, the program may eventually be expanded to other types of aircraft. AVweb interviewed Dr. Fries at AirVenture this week for this exclusive podcast. More
