Makes Better Pilots
SimCom brings the best of structured training to personal flying
THE SAFETY RECORD OF the major airlines in the United States is simply astonishing. It has been more than nine years since a passenger
on a major airline in the United States was killed in an accident.
And the business jet safety record, while not quite as good, comes
very close to that of the majors.
Many factors contribute to the outstanding safety record of these
two groups, but I think one of the most important is regular standard-
ized training in simulators. A simulator concentrates and focuses the
training time in ways that are not possible in actual airplanes. And
because a sim can’t hurt you, it allows
instructors to teach, and pilots to practice,
the kinds of in-flight emergencies that would
be insane to attempt in a real airplane.
