Biographical Note

Robert W. Sweginnis was born in Brooklyn, New York, on 25 February 1940. He attended Brooklyn Technical High School and continued his education at New York University where he earned a B.S. in aeronautical engineering in 1961. He earned an M.S. in engineering and administration from Southern Methodist University in 1973.

Sweginnis was in the Air Force Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) at New York University, and he served in the United States Air Force for twenty-one years. His military service included a combat tour in Vietnam flying an F-4 Phantom fighter on 254 combat missions. He was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross and the Vietnam Gallantry Cross with Bronze Star. He also served as an aircraft maintenance officer, instructor pilot, unit operations officer for his tactical fighter squadron, safety engineer, and aircraft accident investigator. Sweginnis spent three years at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base managing system safety for the development of the A-10 Thunderbolt II. His final assignment was at the Air Force Safety Center, and he retired in 1982 with the rank of Lieutenant Colonel.

Following his retirement from the Air Force, Sweginnis taught at the University of Southern California and worked for Lockheed Corporation and General Dynamics. After a move to Arizona, he taught courses in aerodynamics, aircraft performance, and aviation safety at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, Prescott Campus, where he was assistant professor (1992-1996) and then associate professor (1996-2004) in the Aeronautical Science Department. With Richard H. Wood, Sweginnis co-authored Aircraft Accident Investigation in 1995 (Casper, Wyo.: Endeavor Books).

On 28 August 2004, Sweginnis and Embry-Riddle Chief Flight Instructor Mike Corradi were practicing aerobatic maneuvers in preparation for the 2004 Prescott Air Fair when their aircraft collided in midair. Both men were killed in the accident.


Scope and Content

These papers document Robert W. Sweginnis' involvement and interest in aviation safety education and aviation training. In addition to files related to courses taught by Sweginnis at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, University of Southern California, and elsewhere, the collection contains accident investigation guides, manuals and other information on specific aircraft and equipment, and reference materials on aviation and safety topics. The collection also contains a small amount of material from Embry-Riddle's flight training department.

Topics represented in these files include aviation safety, aircraft accident investigation, meteorology and weather-related aviation issues, aircraft engines and engine maintenance, aircraft performance, material factors, human factors, system safety, midair collisions, flight training, fuel systems, aircraft structures, crashworthiness, aircraft design, rotorcraft, instrument flight rules (IFR), failure analysis, risk assessment, electron fractography, upset recovery, bird strikes, runway safety, takeoff safety, fire, data recorders, simulators, flight controls, braking, and tires. Also included is information on the International Society of Air Safety Investigators (ISASI), the Flight Safety Foundation, Jerome Lederer, and S. Harry Robertson.

Manuals, reports, and safety information are included for aircraft manufactured by Beechcraft, Boeing, Cessna, Piper, and Republic, as well as manuals and parts catalogs for Avco Lycoming engines. Manuals, training guides, and other information for military aircraft are also included; aircraft represented are the A-4M Skyhawk; B-52 Stratofortress; F-4 Phantom II; F-5E Tiger II; F-15 Eagle; F-16 Fighting Falcon; F/A-18 Hornet; OV-10A Bronco; T-28B/C Trojan; T-34C Mentor; T-38A Talon; T-41A Mescalero; and the TS-2A, US-2A/B/C/ Tracker.
