Flight Safety

Aviators have the responsibility to be aware of potential conflicts and AVOID them.

Considering approximately 65% of all near mid-air collisions reported occur near airports, 15% on low-level training routes, and 10% in military operating areas, the "big sky" theory is not always the best approach.

It is important to know where the "threat" is and how to scan for traffic conflicts. These materials include a Pope pamphlet on avoiding mid-air collisions, an in-depth presentation about the mission and tactics in the local flying area, the areas where aircraft conduct training and Federal Aviation Agency (FAA) information.
