***UPDATED with link to confidential survey*** General Aviation Survey

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 click on the link below to take the survey, or you can copy and paste the survey text from the previous post and email the answers to me at mcquillk@my.erau.edu 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.

Please click on the following link to complete the survey.


Thank you very much for taking the time to do this. I truly appreciate it!

Good update.

Now we can take the survey privately, and much more conveniently.

Now you’ve learned more than just the answers to the survey, right?

Hello… Thank you to everyone who completed my survey. I ended the survey this morning because I had reached my sampling goal. I wasn’t sure what to expect, given that this was my first foray onto many of these message boards, but I am happy to say that I was overwhelmed by the response! I was hoping to get to 100 responses, and I got that and then some, in only 24 hours! Needless to say, I have a lot of data to sift through, and many of the answers were not what I expected, which is good because it will make the research much more interesting. When I am finished with the project, in about 3 weeks, I will post the survey results and final paper here.

Again, thanks for the interest!
