Raising the Bar for Safety in General Aviation

IA-Proficiency Training Program

For decades, U.S. airlines have maintained the finest safety record in the world thanks in part to a single practice: Continuous pilot proficiency training. Unfortunately, general aviation has never come close to commercial airlines’ stellar performance.

Safety: The Most Important Factor in Aviation

As a business professional and pilot, you understand that while flying is a source of joy, it’s also serious business. That’s why IA has designed its IA-Proficiency; to keep aviation operators, their flight teams, and customers continuously engaged in sharpening their skills to achieve the kind of safety superiority that U.S. commercial airlines have proved possible.
