The UK Air Accident Investigation Branch AAIB have commented: “All of the inspectors thought the course was worthwhile and that it would be invaluable for its target audience of PPL owners. Most were impressed by the pro-active stance which Robinson had taken towards improving safety by pilot education, recognising that the education should continue after the award of a license.

“Our engineers were pleased by your technical explanations, which they felt made up for the less than comprehensive manuals”.
