The FAA publishes a magazine on a bi-monthly schedule titled FAA Safety Briefing. The July/August issue available here covers two subjects that seem to be weak in our general aviation operations – mentoring our younger pilots and general professionalism. Perhaps taking a more professional attitude toward flying would have kept three different aircraft from being escorted out of the Camp David TFR this past weekend.
The 2011 General Aviation Awards National Winners are announced in this issue and will also be honored at this year’s EAA AirVenture in Oshkosh, WI. The schedule of events at the FAA Aviation Safety Center at AirVenture is also included.
There are also articles covering professionalism in maintenance, and discussions on the ways that type clubs might help in enhancing aviation safety.
FAA Safety Briefing is the safety policy voice for the non-commercial general aviation community. The magazine’s objective is to improve safety by:
making the community aware of FAA resources
helping readers understand safety and regulatory issues, and
encouraging continued training.
