Sumwalt handed the microphone to legendary aerobatic pilot Patty Wagstaff who said, "While loss of control numbers is not increasing, they're not going away either," adding that technology, ATC, weather reporting, digital flight controls and other new systems have created a much-improved safety record. "With all of this technology why are pilots flying in the best ATC system in the world, having trouble controlling their aircraft outside the normal flight envelope," she asked. "LOCI proceeded by a stall accounts for more fatal accidents across the board. Between 2008-2016 there were 1000 fatal accidents in GA. Last year 86 accidents occurred with 140 fatalities. This keeps happening because pilots are exceeding the critical angle of attack on their airplane." She said the startle factor that accompanies an unintended stall is also partially responsible for some of the slow reaction times of some pilots.
