Plan On Coming Home

Join the turnback research effort

Turnback Research - Suspended
Our team has asked pilots across the country to help us understand the capabilities of various make and model planes to turn back. We have asked them to record their turnback attempts at a safe altitude, according to our provided procedure, and send us their flight recordings. Many took the opportunity to do so and received detailed reports on their plane's capabilities.

For now, we are suspending the offer to record your turnback and receive a report. Instead, the group is at work constructing training material for the turnback maneuver, which other safety committees and the FDA will review.
