Safety Highlights Series for Popular Aircraft from AOPA Air Safety Institute

If you own or fly one of the following makes/models of aircraft, you may find it helpful to review the Safety Highlights series published by AOPA Air Safety Institute.

The list of free PDFs available from AOPA ASI includes:

  • Cessna 172 Skyhawk (PDF file—1,456KB)
  • Beechfcraft Bonanza/Debonair (PDF file—462KB)
  • Cessna 182 Skylane (PDF file—423KB)
  • Piper Cherokee and Arrow (PDF file—467KB)

I recommend these brochures to all customers who fly one of these models. They’re also good references for CFIs, especially during flight reviews. The pamphlets include summaries of common problems and accidents involving the specific models, sample test questions to help ensure that pilots are familiar with important information about the aircraft, and training guides.
