Aero-TV: Hartzell’s Joe Brown -- A Passion For Proficiency

One Of Aviation's Great Innovators Tackles The 'Proficiency Issue' Head-On

While at Redbird Migration 2014, ANN CEO and Editor-In-Chief, Jim Campbell spent some time talking with Joe Brown, the president of the Hartzell Propeller Company.

However, don't expect to hear much about the Hartzell line of propellers. In this video Jim talks to Brown about the issue of pilot proficiency, and this is something that Brown is anxious to talk about.

Brown classified himself as an everyday pilot who has come to see the light of the importance of maintaining pilot proficiency at many levels. It has been proven that accidents often have little to do with the total amount of pilot flying time; they are more commonly linked to pilots that have not maintained proficiency.

Brown discusses how the advancements in simulation and the availability of simulators now allow GA pilots to take advantage of cost-effective recurrent training. He is also an advocate of mentoring and says his skills have improved simply by associating with pilots more qualified than himself.

This brings up the IMC Club, an organization dedicated to bringing people together in a chapter format to talk and learn about issues related to instrument flying. Brown was heavily involved with the IMC activities held at EAA AirVenture 2014.

In this video you'll learn more about advances in flight simulation, the IMC Club, and the importance of pilot attitude when it comes to remaining current.
