Hello… I am a student at Embry Riddle, and I am working on a research paper for one of my classes. I am doing research on safety in general aviation, specifically, de-bunking the “Cirrus Pilot” myth. I plan to prove that, when properly trained on the equipment, the Cirrus Aircraft, and others with advanced features, are extremely safe. I am presenting this exact survey to many pilot groups, including, but not limited to: Cessna Pilot’s Group, AOPA, EAA, and others. I will gladly present my final paper to those that are interested. Please complete the following survey, and either re-post your answers here, or copy and paste it in an email directly to me at email@example.com Thanks in advance for helping me out, and please know that no names are required or needed on the survey, and no names will be included in the final paper.
General Aviation Safety
Do you own or
rent your primary aircraft?
What make and
model aircraft do you fly most often?
aircraft have any of the following equipment:
Auto Pilot:__________ Oxygen:__________ Pressurization:__________ Flight Into
XM Weather:__________ Airframe
do you currently hold?
When was your
Private Pilot Certificate issued?
PRIMARY training done in the same type aircraft you currently fly?
trained in spins and spin recovery?
Have you ever
performed a spin and recovery as P.I.C.?
Do you use any type of tablet computer
in the cockpit during flights? If yes, for what purpose?
Have you ever started a flight in
conditions that you thought may be more than you can handle?
If you fly IFR with a glass cockpit, would
you be comfortable making the same flights with an all steam gauge equipped
aircraft? (Think of an aircraft with
basic IFR package, from pre-1990).
Finally, do you feel as though you are
always in complete control of the aircraft during ALL PHASES of flight? If not,
