Training Standards Development for General Aviation Aircraft

The FITS research team has developed a combined private pilot certificate and instrument rating syllabus that was implemented at a university. Initial results indicate that the pilots completing this course have the same or better level of aeronautical competency over traditionally trained pilots and a higher level of skills in the 4 key areas: aeronautical decision making, risk management, situational awareness, and single pilot resource management.
