Flight Times

The Soaring Safety Foundation is tasked with analyzing accident data to identify ways to reduce the accident rate. To accomplish this task the SSF regularily tracks the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) accident reports.

While these accident reports provide an insight into the number of accidents, they do not help to identify the accident rates. To generate accident rates the SSF needs some additional information. Specifically we need to know how many flights or the number of flight hours US glider pilots are obtaining. You can help fill in this missing information by filling out this simple form.
