Aviation enthusiasts flock to training conference

May 19, 2011, 12:12 pm

The Society of Aviation and Flight Educators held a pilot training reform symposium last week in an effort to improve civilian training, according to Flying Magazine. Original equipment manufacturers, pilot insurance companies and flight schools were among those in attendance.

"Education is about teaching a pilot how to aviate no matter what, how to navigate challenges beyond the textbook, how to communicate through crew resource management," FAA administrator, J. Randolph Babbitt, said during a speech to the attendees. "That’s what scenario-based training - or maybe I should say scenario-based education - is all about."

More than 150 people attended the symposium where they generated ideas on how to proceed with the reform program, the magazine reports. Babbitt said that SAFE initiatives are part of the FAA's five-year strategy for transforming general aviation safety.

A main focus of the meetings was to address issues that are prohibiting growth within the aviation community, such as fatal accident rates, student retention, student starts and aircraft sales, according to the magazine.
