Laurence I. Balter receives Flight Training Recognition of Safety

KIHEI, HI – 13 Oct, 2016 – Laurence I. Balter of Kihei, HI earned the Cirrus Standardized Instructor Pilot awarded by Cirrus Aircraft.  As Chief Instructor for Maui Flight Academy operating the Cirrus SR22, Balter recently instituted the use of Angle of Attack in flight training.  

“This new program greatly enhances flight safety by letting the pilot know how much lift is available on the wing during all phases of flight.  As a result, the Loss of Control issues which are the leading cause of injuries and accidents in general aviation diminishes greatly,”  Balter said.

The Angle of Attack indicator in use by Maui Flight Academy is the KLR10 manufactured by Bendix King.

“Instructors need to change the way they teach aerodynamics and flight control by use of Angle of Attack.  This is the way the military has been teaching and flying for decades, and there is no reason not to use it. I encourage all pilots to use Angle of Attack and begin to learn its benefits.  Soon we will get the insurance carriers to issue discounts for pilots who install the Angle of Attack indicator in their aircraft,”  claims Balter.
