Please see information below about a Webinar Embry-Riddle will be hosting on Tuesday, March 30th from 12-1pm:
Topic: Aviation - What is Going Right?
The aviation industry has a long history of studying mishaps and errors – and rightfully so, because aviation is unforgiving of mistakes. But the truth is, most of both commercial and general aviation flights end safely, despite the dynamic environment in which we fly. What is it that people do routinely, every day, that makes aviation so safe, and how can we support and encourage those behaviors and practices?
Join us for a one of a kind virtual event featuring world-class Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University alumni, faculty, and quality partner in FlightSafety International on March 30th at 12 pm EST.
Time: Mar 30, 2021 12:00 PM EST; Approximately 1 hour

Global Safety Manager @FlightSafety International
Pam Cripps joined FlightSafety International as a flight and human factors instructor in 1999 after completing her Bachelor of Science in Technology with a major in Aviation Studies from Bowling Green State University. For most folks pursuing a career in aviation, the goal is to fly in the corporate or airline industry. Pam’s focus was always on aviation safety and accident prevention. In 2012, she completed her Masters in Aeronautical Science from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. The coursework had a direct impact on viewing safety beyond Crew Resource Management in a cockpit environment to a more global view of safety originating at the organizational level. In 2015 she was responsible for the design and implementation of the first FAA recognized Safety Management System (SMS) for a Part 142 aviation training provider. Pam is currently the Global Safety Manager and responsible for the ongoing improvement of FlightSafety’s safety programs.
