About Rick Beach, the COPA de facto accident historian

Rick posts regularly about Cirrus accident statistics, lessons learned from Cirrus accident investigations and ways to fly more safely.  When he first bought his SR22 in 2001 as a newly minted VFR-only pilot, he soon crossed the site of the first fatal Cirrus accident.  Since then he has been interested in studying why people die in a safe airplane.  He teaches the Single Pilot Resource Management module at west-coast CPPP weekends, he edits the annual safety issue of Cirrus Pilot magazine, and occasionally takes on critics who post misinformation on other aviation forums.
