Safety is the Job.

Pilots earn a living safely moving people and cargo around the world.

Wayman Crash Safety

Pilots are obsessed with safety. Reading NTSB crash reports and every notice from the FAA. It starts with learning to pre-flight the aircraft on your first flight. Practicing emergency maneuvers, and learning the limitations of your airplane.  This extends to all of the systems and standard procedures that the academy uses to create the safest environment possible.

For more than 34 years Wayman has had an excellent safety record. However, over hundreds of thousands of flight hours we have had experiences with accidents and incidents at various levels. From this we have learned to trusts systems, educate with safety in mind, and grow an open culture of safety reporting.

How safe is it to become and Airline Pilot?

Safety is one of the biggest concerns in aviation and for students when considering becoming an airline pilot.

SMS: Safety Management System

Safety Management Systems (SMS) are an integral part of safe and progressive aviation operations. SMS provides a structured approach to oversee and manage safety risks. Every operation, flight school or business is different with the SMS system taking into account the unique structure of an operation.

Training Responsibly: Emergency Procedures

For pilots safety is always at the forefront of everything that we do. The risk of each flying decision is always assessed; while checklists, flows and standard procedures are the foundation of a safe operation. A flight training environment brings its own set of safety challenges that must always be addressed. At the same time, we should seek to go through training in an efficient but responsible manner. Here is some information about what training responsibly can mean.

Safety in General Aviation

Captains take on the responsibility to get their passengers, crew, and equipment to its destination safely. It is an integral fiber woven into the culture of aviation. This is visible through the safety briefing flight attendants deliver before every commercial flight and in the preflights, emergency procedures, and checklist followed by pilots on every flight.
