The National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) has announced that the Cessna Aircraft Company will serve as sponsor for the Single Pilot Safety Standdown to be held March 14, 2009, in conjunction with the Association's inaugural Light Business Airplane Exhibition & Conference (LBA2009).

"Everyone knows that safety is at the very foundation of business aviation, and standdown events are an effective way to disseminate best safety practices and promote their adoption in the industry," said NBAA President and CEO Ed Bolen. "NBAA is honored that Cessna has chosen to partner with us in producing our first-ever Single Pilot Safety Standdown at our new show, which will be structured to address the specific needs of single-pilot business airplane operations."

The information offered at the Single Pilot Safety Standdown will draw upon the actual experiences of pilots, providing an emphasis on peer-to-peer information-sharing. Safety-themed sessions will focus on emerging technologies in cockpit information and decision-support systems to enhance operational safety, best-practices for on-the-ground operations, and planning for flights outside the continental U.S.
 
"For the business aviation community, safety has always been a top priority, and Cessna continually works to foster awareness of procedures and information for reducing human error," said Cessna Aircraft Company Chairman, President and CEO Jack Pelton. "We're delighted to have this opportunity to help put safety resources into the hands of single-pilot business airplane operators, who are such an important part of the Cessna family and the larger business aviation community."
