The rate of accidents occurring in the general aviation field is considerably higher than other facets of the aviation industry. In an effort to reduce the number of these General Aviation Accidents, Cirrus Aircraft announced today that it would be launching a multi-year pilot training and safety course.
According to an article published by Aviation Pros, the program will consist of creating more high-quality pilot training courses as well as educating owners of Cirrus aircraft on the use of the Cirrus Airframe Parachute System.
The company plans to reach more pilots by creating and filling two additional trainer positions within the company. These individuals will be responsible for offering hands-on teaching to pilots of the Cirrus aircraft.
The company also plans to make pilots of their aircraft more aware of a new safety system that will deploy a parachute capable of safely bringing an entire aircraft to the ground in the event of an emergency. To date, the device has been solely responsible for saving as many as 69 lives.
The company hopes the efforts will significantly reduce the number of injuries and fatalities that are associated with the aircraft annually.
The Aviation Accident Attorneys with Nurenberg, Paris, Heller & McCarthy applaud the efforts to improve educational programs for pilots of personal aircraft and wish the company the best of luck with its courses.
