  • Illness.
  • Medications.
  • Stress.
  • Anxiety.

Our Performance and Safety Standards are Stringent:

 

- We continually observe our client's current physical condition, attention to flight planning and safety, skill and performance level as a pilot in the respective aircraft CEFS provides.

 

- If the Owner/Operator of CEFS or a CEFS CFI has concern(s) of any kind at any time (including lack of progression) you will be counseled on what and how to improve. If unsatisfactory improvement continues then you will not be cleared to fly solo and rental/training/evaluation will cease.

 

- Experience matters but recoginze flying skill diminishes with inactivity. Proficieny flights are required to keep one's skills.

 

- CEFS has a variety of aircraft. No two aircraft models are equipped the same and performance numbers cannot be confused. Every aircraft is unique. You are required to read the POH of the respective aircraft before familiarization operations.

 

Conditions of Business with CEFS

 

- The Owner/Operator of CEFS or a CEFS CFI reserves the right at any time to permanently require you to fly dual with a qualified pilot (qualified by CEFS) who is current and prepared to assume full Pilot-in-Command duties in the same aircraft.

 

Walk Aways.... (these situations have already happened)

 

- If you approach us and say something like "Hey, I need to rent your aircraft right away. I have somewhere I need to be right now" then you will be refused. We have a process and you will not bypass our business or safety procedures. Walk away.

 

- If your pilot credentials have been revoked by the FAA at any time or you have operated an aircraft as Pilot-in-Command without valid or with expired credentials we are not interested in doing business with you. Walk away.

 

- If you have damaged/wrecked an aircraft and it is determined by the investigating authority to have been your fault, we are not interested in doing business with you. Walk away.

 

- If you appoach us and say something like "I do not want to waste time learning about that" then your business will be refused. Walk away.

 

- If you or your family has the romantic notion that you will "die doing what you love" in one of our aircraft then you show an unacceptable attitude of resignation. Recognize our aircraft are used in the training of public and privately owned drug-sniffing animals and personnel learning to use chemical wipes. Walk away.

 

- If we observe you to have or demonstrate an adverse attitude toward the FAA, CEFS or Airport rules and procedures then your business with us will cease. Walk away.

 

- If you or a family member makes any statement or threat toward CEFS with something like "nothing better happen to them/me" then understand an adverserial relationship already exists with CEFS and litigation is assured in an incident. All rental and training will cease and our business is concluded effective immediately. Walk away.

 

- If you are associated with, possess, or are participating in illegal drug activity and/or the abuse of legal drugs (alcohol is a legal drug) then your business with us will cease. Recognize CEFS aircraft are used to train drug sniffing dogs and personnel using chemical wipes to detect drugs or explosives. Walk away.

 

- If you use CEFS aircraft to violate or circumvent any laws of these United States then our business with you is concluded. If the respective aircraft is seized by authorities then you will be subject to the cost of aircraft, it's recovery and/or punitive damages for loss of business in Civil Court.

 

- If you have the attitude that you do all the talking and we do all the listening then our business with you is concluded. Walk away.

 

- If your main interest in flying is joy-riding and/or self-promotion via social media we will not do business with you. Walk away.

 

When Problems Occur:

 

- CEFS reserves the right to pursue and/or volunteer factual information to any other vendor or authority for the purpose of identifying pilots, other vendors, passengers or associates who are reckless and pose a threat to our business, themselves or the Public. CEFS will not cover for bad actors by silence.

 

In the Broadest Sense:

 

- If the Owner/Operator of CEFS determines that any of your actions past or current are an unacceptable liability to our operation then your business with us will cease. We reserve the right to terminate business with any customer at any time with or without explanation.

 

The Bottom Line:

 

- We do not compromise flight safety or unnecessary risks to our business or the Public. You will train in and operate our aircraft in the manner in which the manufacturer has defined in the POH and we instruct accordingly. All laws will be respected. There are no exceptions.

 

Now, to end on a positive note lets (all) do it right, all the time.
