Oshkosh Features Remote Pilot Proficiency Center Training Sessions

Remote Lessons Are Coordinated By SAFE and NAFI Instructors

The Pilot Proficiency Center at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2021 is expanding its reach this year, as it is offering its high-quality simulation exercises and scenarios even for those who can’t be at Oshkosh in-person.

The remote opportunities are in coordination with flight instructors who are members of the National Association of Flight Instructors (NAFI) and the Society of Aviation and Flight Educators (SAFE). These dedicated aviation instructors staff the Pilot Proficiency Center at Oshkosh each year.

“We will be providing the same quality simulation mission exercises and scenarios featured at Oshkosh, but in your home or at a select flight training center near you,” said Radek Wyrzykowski, EAA manager of flight proficiency.

“We'll connect you with experienced instructors who have trained with proven simulation missions and state-of-the-art remote training tools. It’s designed to improve piloting and decision-making skills for pilots regardless of their experience level.”

To participate, pilots unable to come to the Pilot Proficiency Center at Oshkosh can use one of two options:

Receive remote instruction from your own home if you own a home-based Redbird ATD simulator. Requirements include an up-to-date Redbird simulator and a computer video camera connected to a Zoom meeting platform.

Fly at any of the 14 flight training centers throughout the U.S. that are equipped with Redbird simulator systems.

The AirVenture remote offerings are reportedly part of an expanding menu of pilot skill training within the EAA Proficiency365® program.
