FAA Safety Team Website

I attended an FAA general aviation safety seminar last week at the Clermont County airport (I69). At the start of the seminar, the host of the event took a few minutes to give a brief overview of the FAA safety team website and the resources there for pilots. Surprisingly, he mentioned that just over half of the general aviation pilots in the US are registered at the site. The FAA is trying to get the word out to folks to register. By the way, you don’t have to be a pilot to use the site. Anyone interested in aviation or a student pilot can benefit.

One of the nice features of the site is the option to send notices to you by email for many different items – newsletters, seminar announcements, airworthiness info, etc (the safety program airman notification system). You can pick and choose what you want to get in your preferences. Also, the site has many training/refresher documents, on-line courses, etc. in the learning center area. If you haven’t been there, check it out.
