SAFE Delivers Presentation On Takeoff And Initial Climb
The Society of Aviation and Flight Educators (SAFE) recently
delivered another in its series of twelve
“Seminar-in-a-Box” (SIB) products for use by the FAA
Safety Team (FAASTeam). The SIBs are designed to facilitate
interactive discussion among instructors, examiners, and FAASTeam
members on topics related to flight training and accident
prevention. They further encourage the sharing of best practices in
an effort to reduce the fatal accident rate.
Entitled Takeoff and Initial Climb, the latest seminar goes
beyond teaching to the minimum requirements of the practical test
and addresses the responsibilities that flight instructors incur,
as well as the opportunities they have, to inculcate a safety
mentality in the earliest stages of flight instruction.
Prior to nationwide deployment, each SIB is reviewed and
accepted by AFS-850. Takeoff and Initial Climb follows the current
quarterly topic, Training in Experimental/Amateur Built Aircraft,
which was also developed by SAFE members. The next forum in the
series will address Controlled Flight Into Terrain. SAFE represents
nearly 700 of the industry's top aviation educators, including the
majority of Master Instructors as well as numerous local, regional,
and national General Aviation Awards winners.
