The Premier Flying Club of Southern California
We take safety very seriously at Plus One Flyers and are proud of our excellent safety record which we attribute to the care and good judgment of our member pilots and our Safety Program led by Safety Officer Bob Agresto.
A whopping 38% reduction in aircraft insurance premiums paid by the club relative to 2006 rates highlights the success of the club's Safety Program and the collective excellent flying judgment, skills and habits of club members, and helps offset rising fuel costs! Keep up the great work and best flying practices, everyone!
Personal flight is a privilege and uniquely American legacy we take seriously and endeavor to protect and promote. The club's Safety Program was created to specifically and proactively manage our club member pilot flying risks. While no panacea, the program has produced undeniably tangible results for many years, including year after year accident avoidance.
There are two cornerstones of the Safety Program, the first of which is the club's member CFIs, who through the club's semi-monthly CFI Safety Meetings, conducted by the club's Safety Officer, are continually updated and inculcated with safety-oriented decision-making training techniques, post-incident or post-accident analyses, and open and professional discussion and Q&A of new FAA requirements and club policies. The meetings are mandatory at least once every six months for a CFI to retain authorization to give flight instruction in club airplanes.
The second cornerstone of the Safety Program is the club-mandated ANNUAL flight review for every member not already in an active training syllabus, twice as often as the FAA requires. Not only does this immediately encourage higher flight proficiency, it provides twice the opportunity for our member CFIs to evaluate, train and coach our club members to a higher standard of club pilot expectations, and review and reinforce the club's Bylaws, Operational Rules and Code of Conduct, which are reasonable, sensible and easy to follow.
All Plus One Flyers FAA-Certified Flight Instructor members giving instruction, flight reviews or checkouts in club airplanes are required to attend at least one safety meeting within the previous six months. All club members are also invited to attend CFI safety meetings, which are held at the Montgomery Terminal building first floor conference room (under Casa Machado restaurant) unless otherwise specified.
