Safety Pilot

Prior to departure, pilots check weather information of departure and arrival airports and enroute in the airport office, and prepare for a safe flight.
After boarding the aircraft, they receive a detailed report of maintenance conditions from maintenance engineers. They also personally inspect the aircraft and check for any trouble to make sure everything is all right.

Personally inspects the aircraft

Then, the pilots hold a briefing with cabin attendants, and share information on emergency procedures, security information, expected turbulence enroute, weather information at the destination, etc. If turbulence is expected, they provide the degree and time, the timing for turning on the seat belt sign, and discuss the cabin service plan, etc., and make preparations to ensure a safe and comfortable flight through joint efforts.
Afterwards, in the cockpit, the pilots inspect whether devices are working properly. Immediately before departure, they make a final check of devices using a checklist, and after confirming the safety of the aircraft, the aircraft is ready for departure. After receiving clearance from the air traffic controller, the aircraft takes off.

Share information with cabin attendants to ensure a safe and comfortable flight

During flight, the pilots pay attention to weather and airport conditions, conditions of the aircraft and aircraft flying in the vicinity. While making appropriate decisions at vital points in time, they operate the aircraft so as to ensure a safe and comfortable flight.
Even after arriving at the destination, the pilots review the flight, and submit a safety report. By reporting weather and aircraft conditions enroute to relevant staff, they support safe operations of the next flight.

Coordination with ground staff is essential to ensure flight safety
