Reported mishaps during dual instructional flights


Historically 10-13% of reported Beech mishaps occur during the course of dual flight instruction. Certainly far less than 10% of all Beech flying is done in an instructional environment.  This points to the added risk of instruction and the need for instructor knowledge and diligence to maintain a level of safety.


Although the number of reported mishaps has followed the total trend very closely (see the annual reports summary chart) the percentage of Beech mishaps that take place during dual instruction remains about constant.
