Air Safety Solos First PROFESSIONAL Student In CIRRUS

A New Generation in Flight Training Has Begun

Air Safety Flight Academy today announced that Air Safety student Nathan Kimborowicz of Hingham, MA completed his first solo flight in a Cirrus SR20-G2. With only 19 hours of flight time, Nathan Kimborowicz becomes one of the first primary flight students ever to solo the Cirrus. This solo flight marks the beginning of a new generation in professional pilot training. The Cirrus SR20-G2 has now proven itself to be an excellent aircraft for both primary and advanced flight instruction.

Located in Arizona, Air Safety Flight Academy is the first flight school in the United States to utilize glass cockpit equipped aircraft as primary training aircraft for professional pilot training. Air Safety Flight Academy, well known for their Airline Preparation Program™, selected Cirrus from a field of worthy competitors primarily due to the advanced engineering and safety features that only Cirrus offers.

According to Air Safety president Dee Pinkston, "Our mission is to provide students exceptional flight training while focusing on safety, quality and customer service through the use of technically advanced aircraft. I feel the advanced systems on the Cirrus, such as Ground Proximity Warning, XM Satellite Weather, and Skywatch offer Air Safety students a large technological edge over other flight academies. Since the avionics platform used in the Cirrus is identical to most commercial aircraft, Air Safety students are able to train in real-world aircraft from day one of their program. As a former airline pilot I can tell you first-hand that Cirrus has more technology built into it than any of the aircraft I used to fly for the airlines."

John M. Bingham, executive vice president of sales for Cirrus believes that Air Safety Flight Academy is just the first of more progressive flight training institutions who realize the value of safety and glass cockpits in primary trainers. "It seems logical that students train on the modern aircraft systems they will eventually fly commercially. Training on technologically advanced aircraft will help create a safer pilot", Bingham concluded.
