Air Safety Institute Expands Education Effort
The AOPA Air Safety Institute has launched a new initiative, the Safety Alliance, which brings together safety-related resources from across the industry in one location online. The content, all of which is free to all pilots, is organized by topic on its own Safety Alliance webpage. “ASI is proud to provide a common platform for anyone who is passionate about aviation safety education,” said Katie Pribyl, a spokesperson for AOPA. “Further improvements to GA safety requires a team effort and isn’t something we can do alone. We know that many other organizations provide high-quality safety-focused content and we want to make it easy for pilots to find that information.”
The content covers a wide variety of topics, including aerodynamics, aircraft ownership and maintenance, emergency procedures, flight planning, thunderstorm avoidance and more. Most links at the site lead to free instructional videos and webinars. New links will be added regularly, AOPA said. AOPA’s Air Safety Institute, which was established in 1950, provides pilot education and safety programs for all of general aviation, at no cost to users.
