They are certainly less safe than they should be! A recent National
Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) study showed fewer total accidents for glass
cockpit aircraft, but a higher fatal accident rate and a higher
total of fatal accidents!
Glass cockpit technology offers general aviation pilots the promise of increased levels safety and
performance. Why has the promise of greater levels of safety for glass cockpit
airplanes not been realized? Because general aviation pilots and training
providers have not yet evolved the way they train and fly to catch up with the
advances in glass cockpit technology.
Bob Littlefield wrote Glass Cockpit Flying to help remedy this problem by explaining what makes glass
cockpit airplanes different, and giving general aviation pilots and training
providers the tools and knowledge they need to fly these airplanes safely and
efficiently. This book is important to everyone who flies, wants to fly, or
instructs in general aviation glass cockpit airplanes.
