Cessna Aircraft is nearing approval
from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to host a flight
instructor safety stand down, a first for any aircraft original
equipment manufacturer (OEM).
“Cessna’s 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,” said Will Dirks, Cessna’s vice president
of Flight Operations.
“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 18-hour course was
designed by Cessna flight instructors who have considerable
knowledge and experience in this area.”
The first-ever Cessna Flight Instructor Safety Stand Down is
scheduled for May 30-31 in St. Louis, Mo.
