Research and studies have shown intentional deviation WILL often lead to mismanaged flights and repairs, more errors and ultimately direct threat to flight safety. What is procedural intentional Noncompliance or PINC? 

In simple terms, around the world in the aviation profession, flight crews and aircraft maintenance technicians are intentionally non-compliant and sometimes they deviate purposely from standard operating procedures (SOPs).

During this informational session, we will discuss this threat, identify the why and how it is occurring and hopefully provide some insight on improving your SOPs, identifying PINC and attempt to minimize and address this concerning trend.
