"Safety Will Never Be Compromised"

As a FAA Recognized Air Boss for Basic, Standard, and Complex air shows,   Rawitzer reminds his clients "Safety Will Never Be Compromised".  It is one area of an air show that needs to be handled by a professional air boss.  It starts by choosing qualified performers, proper pre-show preparation and continues with a professionally-run safety briefing, which will result in a safe show.
