Passenger Safety Briefing cards
Pilots are always learning and most of us should know the phrase ‘you don’t have enough time to make every mistake, learn from another’s mistakes too’. But it is not only our flights we learn from, but also our groundwork, preparations, and conversations with fellow aviators.
It is for this very reason that I decided to make some passenger safety briefing cards. Yes, I could just go through the SAFETY acronym before starting the airplane, but then I cannot be sure I won’t forget anything.
Hence, I decided to use these cards as a way for myself to structure my safety briefing. Additionally, I figured these little cards (the size of a business card) would also be a nice keepsake for whoever is flying with me.
I have made these in Paint and then had them printed somewhere. Some notes on the production: I printed only 50 so my supply would not be endless, once I am out of them I can make a new, improved version.
As for the improved version, I think I may make them a little larger, perhaps twice the size of this one. This is because the text on the back is really, really small. Also, the margins are not done very well. Upon entering my design into the print shop’s system, it looked like the margins were okay. But once they arrived, it turns out I had made a small mistake. The cards are not unreadable and thus I will still use them, but they surely aren’t perfect!
