NTSB accident data suggest that pilots with low time in type are more likely to crash. Although some transition training such as high performance, high altitude, complex airplane and tail wheel instruction and endorsement is required by regulation, the case can be made for other types and variations of aircraft, as well.
A new training resource is available online to help pilots more safely and efficiently practice Instrument Approach procedures at Stanfield and Casa Grande Municipal Airport.
Commercial jet and flight-training airspace in the Southeast Valley remains congested.
