The FAA can’t regulate professionalism, but it can ask pilots to take that extra step to continue training, Randy Babbitt, the agency’s administrator, said during a visit to AirVenture in Oshkosh.
“Professionalism isn’t limited to commercial flying,” he said. “It pertains to all aspects of flying. The good news is that a vast majority of pilots are willing to that extra mile.”
He pointed out that FAA, the Experimental Aircraft Association and the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association all have websites that offer online courses, as well as links to where pilots can get training.
