NBAA, Cessna to host events for aircraft owners-operators

A day prior to the official start of the NBAA Convention, on Oct. 19 in Atlanta, the National Business Aviation Association and Cessna Aircraft will host a session focused on single-pilot aircraft safety. The event will be one of several of note to be held by the NBAA and Cessna in the coming weeks.

The Cessna/NBAA Single-Pilot Safety Stand-down takes place Oct. 18, including a full day of safety programs for owner/operators and pilots. Topics include professional airmanship, single-pilot resource management, icing, aviation health, and fatigue countermeasures.

"Gravity and human error don’t discriminate by manufacturer or flight crew," said Cessna manager of flight operations, safety and security Dan Grace on the NBAA web site. “Single pilots are out there by themselves, without the extra checks and defenses of a crew environment, but they can build themselves up through continuing education and safety training."

Other events focusing on light-business aircraft at NBAA will include How to Use General Aviation for Business Purposes, Single Pilot Safety and Moving Up to a Turbine Aircraft, among other sessions. See the full list here.

Before the NBAA Convention, the folks at Cessna will host a series of aircraft-specific M&O sessions focused on its Citation fleet.

Unlike in prior years, Cessna will broadcast the sessions on the Internet throughout this week. Click here to see the dates, times and aircraft involved.
