Podcast: Running Out of Fuel
File Size 9.3 MB / Running Time 10:08
When a perfectly good airplane ends up in the trees because it ran out of fuel, most pilots shake their heads in disbelief, but they also wonder -- could that happen to me? Bruce Landsberg, president of the AOPA Foundation and the Air Safety Institute, says it happens more often than you might think -- on average, about twice a week in the U.S. (Click here for his recent analysis and a map.) AVweb's Mary Grady talks with Landsberg to find out why these preventable accidents continue to happen and learns about some successful strategies that are helping to reduce the numbers.
