About the Author

Honored with the Royal Aeronautical Society’s Best Safety Submission at the Aerospace Journalist of the Year Awards in Paris in 2007, Pat Veillette has applied that same in-depth research since 1988 in hundreds of safety articles you may have seen in the Flight Safety Digest, Aviation Safety, Fire Management Notes, Helicopter Safety, the Transportation Research Record, Wildfire, Aviation Mechanic’s Bulletin, Airline Pilot, AOPA Pilot, Business and Commercial Aviation, and the FAA Aviation News. Those works have garnered awards from the National Research Council and the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics. He has been consulted by the U.S. General Accounting Office, NASA Ames, Air Force Scientific Advisory Board and several major airlines on aviation safety related matters. In 25 years of flying experience, he has accumulated over 15,000 hours of flight experience in more than 120 types of aircraft, from balloons, rotorcraft, sea planes, gliders, war birds, supersonic jets and large commercial transports. He has been an accident investigator since 1983 where his contributions have formulated critical changes to aerospace safety, and is formerly an FAA Designated Pilot Examiner. Pat is a 1983 graduate of the U.S. Air Force Academy where he earned a B.S. degree with Distinction in Aeronautical Engineering and subsequently earned M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in engineering. He is presently an operational check airman at a major air carrier.
