CFI Brief: UPS Flight 1354 Crash, Lessons Learned

You may remember back in 2013 a UPS Airbus A300-600 crashed while on final approach to Birmingham International Airport, both pilots were fatally injured. The National Transportation Safety Board has just wrapped up a nearly two year investigation into the accident and on Monday released the first ever video companion to an accident report. The purpose of the video is to help pilots understand exactly what went wrong and key lessons that can be learned from this tragic event. It doesn’t matter if you are a student pilot or flight instructor the video is a somber reminder of what can go wrong in the cockpit even to the most experienced of flight crews.

You can find the summary and full NTSB narrative of the accident investigation here.
