Do you have a non-pilot who regularly flies with you? If so, you’ve probably had them handle a few simple tasks for you in the airplane: reading the VFR sectional, dialing in a departure frequency, or maybe even taking the controls for a few minutes. But what if you needed them to do more? What if you became ill, or incapacitated? Could they navigate to the closest airport and land the plane? Maybe your spouse or flying buddy has no interest in getting their pilot’s license, but there’s numerous reasons why you should seriously consider enrolling them in the Pinch Hitter course at Cirrus Aviation. They will learn what to do in case of an in-flight emergency, and a plan makes all the difference in the world. At the end of this short and user-friendly course, they’ll feel more confident in the aircraft, and who knows- maybe it will inspire them to go the whole way and get that pilot’s license after all!
