Safety (a.k.a Aircraft Utilization)
"Aircraft Utilization" is the term frequently used by our long time Insurance Broker Larry.
During our annual renewal discussion Larry always said "Safety" has been used as word used by members to throw at other members as a way to motivate each other to be better pilots. However, it usually creates a negative feelings and tendency to hide ones valuable learning experience out of fear of being judged by others. These experiences should be shared and pilots of our club should be encouraged by others to "utilize" our aircraft.
Here are some helpful words from your Club volunteer Safe Awarness Coordinator Jim Sankey. We have this page to to benefit not only our Club members but all of the flying community. So please do not hesitate to contact Jim if you have any questions SafetyAwarness @ lvfc.org 215-669-7000 (Mobile).
