Flying is safe, if we exercise necessary care and have the proper training. But, we must not overlook or ignore the possibilities of problems during aircraft operations. We have two criteria for choosing the safe training fleets we operate. First, we operate aircraft that are proven safe over years of use in aviation. The Cessna 172R/SP is one of our single engine craft, and the Seminole for our multi engine training. Both types of craft have been tested and proven over the years.
Secondly, we operate fleets that have distinctive features to enhance safety. The Cirrus SR-20 has an emergency parachute, also known as CAPSTM, to help save persons and the aircraft, should an accident such as engine failure occur. We want to have the most safe and secure operations for our students, and safety is always the priority in our training programs.
