Three aviation leaders were elected to the Society of Aviation and Flight Educators (SAFE) Board of Directors in May, each for three-year terms: Sherry Knight Rossiter of Missoula, Montana, Dr. Donna Wilt of Melbourne, Florida, and Ken Wittekiend of Burnet, Texas.
Aviation safety outreach by the Society of Aviation and Flight Educators (SAFE) was strengthened last week with a generous grant from the Wolf Aviation Fund to continue and expand SAFE – The Magazine, the society’s quarterly e-magazine.
An iPhone and iPad version of the SAFE Toolkit app is now available.
The Society of Aviation and Flight Educators (SAFE) have informed the FAA that an unexpected change in agency policy on Letters of Authorization (LOAs) for GA flight simulators will harm aviation safety, create a burden on the industry, and run counter to the intent of current LOAs.
“The FAA should be encouraging better pilot training, not discouraging it,” said Doug Stewart, SAFE Executive Director. “The extra simulator training hours allowed by these LOAs is invaluable.”
A paper recently released by the Society of Aviation and Flight Educators (SAFE) reiterates that loss of control inflight (LOC-I) is the leading cause of fatal GA accidents and suggests ways pilots can prevent it.
