Cessna Aircraft Co. has received FAA approval for its flight instructor safety stand down, a first for any aircraft original equipment manufacturer (OEM).
The safety stand down is a training seminar designed for flight instructors, flight instructor candidates and commercial pilots who may have an interest in becoming flight instructors. The course serves as an all-inclusive training event for several mandated recurrent courses with an emphasis on using new technology to enhance aviation safety. The course will also serve as a flight instructor refresher clinic.
The first-ever Cessna Flight Instructor Safety Stand Down is scheduled for June 13-14 in San Diego.
