Perception and Reality

March 1, 2020

The ABS Air Safety Foundation has a long history of helping other organizations raise the level of safety for all general aviation. ABS helped the Mooney Aircraft Pilots Association (MAPA) create its training program; the Cirrus Owners and Pilots Association came to ABS early in its history, and still today credits ABS for helping to develop the Cirrus Pilot Proficiency Program (CPPP). ABS/ASF was a founding member of the Type Club Coalition (TCC) and still serves on this EAA-sponsored committee of 38 aircraft type clubs, sharing best practices for type-specific transition and recurrent training. I’m currently working with my counterparts in the Piper M-Class Owners and Pilots Association (MMOPA), the Lancair Owners and Builders Organization (LOBO), and the Twin Cessna Flyers group, answering their questions about enhancing their organizations’ pilot training products.
