Flight Training During Covid-19
FL Aviation Center’s mission is to deliver superior flight training to all aviators by providing exceptional instruction immersed in a culture of safety.
When we think of aviation safety, we tend to think of things like aeronautical decision making, proper maintenance, and adherence to the FARs. Our culture of aviation safety now expands in breadth to include health safety. The practice of aeronautical decision making (ADM) has accustomed us to making sound decisions based on thorough risk assessments, and we will carry this mentality forward as we re-open our doors for flight training. We will control the things that we can control, and make smart decisions toward risk mitigation.
“An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” – Benjamin Franklin
Our facilities are sanitized daily, with special emphasis on high-touch areas, using CDC-approved disinfectants. Test center capacity has been decreased to ensure testers will have a minimum of six feet of separation between test stations.
Aircraft will be disinfected by the flight instructor between every flight, following staff guidelines established by management and using CDC-approved disinfectants.
All students will be met at the front door, and must complete a screening assessment before every flight and before entering the facility. Flight instructors must complete the same screening assessment at the start of each day. Any person with temperatures exceeding 99.5 degrees will not be permitted to enter the building. No one with a fever is permitted in school buildings at any time for any reason.
Any staff or customer must immediately report COVID-19 symptoms and date of onset to FL Aviation Center via email to Dispatch@FLAviationCenter.com and self-quarantine. Individuals who test positive for COVID-19, whether symptomatic or asymptomatic, may not return to the flight school for at least 14 days.
