In addition, some demographic variables like age, hours of flying experience and others, were looked at in relation to selected preference variables like preferred method of training, safety features and others, to see if there were any significant relationships. A purposive sampling of the population was obtained through personal visits to five aviation training sites where VLJ pilots were known to be in attendance. This data was collected using an on-site survey administered to a defined population of 25 pilots, each of whom was in or had already completed VLJ training.sections of their airplane flight manual (AFM) that selective training be required to act as pilot-in-command of the aircraft. ... A collision between two small aircraft with less than five people is bad enough, but a VLJ hitting an Airbus 380 wouldanbsp;...
