“Training Safety” is using training tools to develop a safe attitude in pilots, be they students, commercial pilots, or instructors. It is the pilot in command’s responsibility to use all available tools to assess risks, execute the flight, and return everybody in a safe and relaxed manner. “Training Safely” is the idea that both instructor (or examiner) and student pilot have a stake in safely conducting the flight. The course will discuss and develop this theme.
