Caravan Safety Course To Be Mandated

 - November 6, 2006, 11:41 AM

Cessna’s Web site now offers a Caravan cold-weather operations course, a series of five self-paced training modules, taking an estimated two to three hours to complete. Cessna issues users a certificate of completion once they finish the online exams. This training will eventually become mandatory for pilots operating the Caravan in icing conditions, but precisely when and how it will be mandated was not immediately available at press time. The training course and the mandate to require pilots to take the course follow a number of serious Caravan accidents. Cessna will also continue to offer its free safety awareness program for Caravan operators throughout cities in North America.
