Why should I provide a passenger safety briefing?
Don’t forget the importance of providing your passengers with a safety briefing prior to take-off:

- The passengers appear uninterested
- Never skip the safety briefing at a passenger’s request
Not only is a passenger safety briefing important to ensure that your passengers know what is expected of them, it’s also the law. Please review the Canadian Aviation Regulations, specifically 723.39, which discusses the requirement for a safety briefing before a flight.
