At the request of the Flight Standards Service, Resource and Quality Management Division, Evaluation and Analysis Branch and the General Aviation and Commercial Division of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), BTS conducted a survey of general aviation pilots. Results of the survey will be shared with the Aviation Safety National Program Manager and with the Safety Program Managers (SPMs) located at each of the Flight Standards District Offices (FSDOs). In addition, initial results were transmitted to the Office of the Secretary of Transportation to fulfill requirements associated with the overall evaluation of the Safety Seminar Program.
Survey results will help the National Program Manager determine the most effective use of FAA resources in targeting pilots for attendance at safety seminars and in disseminating safety information. Safety Program Managers will use the survey results to develop a seminar program that takes into account customer needs-what they want to know, how they want to receive the information, where they want to receive it, and when.
