“COVID-19 has generated an unprecedented industry-wide decline in manual handling and manual flight operations proficiency,” said APS CEO Paul “BJ” Ransbury. “While the rate of Loss of Control In-flight events are low, for the majority of flight operations it is responsible for more fatalities than any other cause factor; The Aviation Safety Reporting System (ASRS) indicates a substantial increase in manual handling-related incidents since March 2020, suggesting improved manual handling proficiency is essential to safe flight operations.”
