John and Martha King of King Schools have released a new online Flight Instructor Refresher Course (FIRC).
“This FIRC moves away from reviewing the same topics that flight instructors learned as private pilots, and instead gives flight instructors more insight on issues such as identifying and changing at-risk behaviors, and conducting an effective flight review,” said John King.
“The goal is to provide tools to help instructors produce pilots truly ready to be pilot-in-command,” added Martha.
Additionally, the Kings say the FIRC is the first such course to incorporate a paperwork-free, completely online, renewal process. “Instructors will be able to complete the renewal requirements without ever having to move away from their computer, and will receive their temporary certificate by email,” commented John.
“Solving the two major problems in general aviation, the student dropout rate and the fatality rate, requires a fundamental change in the way we teach,” said John King. “And this program is designed to give renewing flight instructors fresh insights into ways they can help their customers to both become good risk managers and long term members of the pilot community.”
The course follows the latest guidance from the FAA recently released as revision “G” of FAA Advisory Circular 61-83.
The King Schools FIRC program has been designed to run on the iPad and on all Windows and Mac Web browsers. It sells for $99 without CFI renewal processing or $124.95 with processing included.
