Victoria Dunbar, a Ph.D. candidate at Florida Institute of Technology’s doctoral program in Aviation Sciences, is investigating the factors that could contribute to CFIs becoming complacent. She hopes to identify prevention strategies that could be developed into standards, which could then lead to a reduced risk of CFI complacency and an overall improvement in GA safety.
She is asking CFIs to complete an online survey, which would take 10 to 15 minutes. The study is targeting those who have a current CFI certificate, regardless if they are currently working as a CFI or not.
