At Inflight our #1 priority is safety. Safety culture is highly important to our organization and we want you to be aware of it the day you enter our facility. We want everyone to be able to safely enjoy all of the benefits that flying brings. We encourage every single person involved with our organization to self-report any potential unsafe actions that might have happened while flying with us, or alternatively report any other unsafe actions you might witness. We want to know this information so we can analyze the events that took place and make continual improvements to make our organization even safer than it is. When you self-report you are helping yourself, general aviation as a whole, and Inflight. The information that you report is strictly confidential and will not be shared with a 3rd party (unless you are blatantly breaking state or federal laws). We will analyze the data and possibly follow up with you for more questions so we can HELP you become a better pilot.
These are just examples. There are numerous things you can report.
