For many years, the US military has held driver safety to be a high priority, both on and off base, as well as in the field. Vehicle accidents in all scenarios are of great concern. However, it has become evident through driver training programs offered in the USAF, that a great percentage of
young Airmen are coming into the service with a lack of previous formal driver training. An efficient, hands on course of training is warranted. Quality curriculum and the ability to provide a more advanced and practical driver training program to large numbers of Air Force personnel make training with SKIDCAR a perfect fit.

Specializing in automobile, truck, and motorcycle driver and rider training equipment, the ability to present basic and advanced driver training in small spaces and at low speeds is the hallmark of the SKIDCAR family of driver training technologies. The SKIDCAR SYSTEM, Inc. corporate tag line of “It’s About Grip, Not Slip®”, has now become a valuable part of the driver safety and training programs at these bases.

SKIDCAR SYSTEM, Inc. is extremely proud to be able to partner with the US Air Force to enhance these important safety programs.
