PilotWorkshops.com has released a free video refresher program for non-towered airport operations.
The program includes three short videos ranging from 6 to 12 minutes in length and can be viewed on any PC or mobile device.
PilotWorkshops founder Mark Robidoux commented, “With the recent announcement of 149 tower closures, there will suddenly be thousands of pilots flying into and out of airports that had ATC services one day, and none the next. While all of us are trained in these procedures, it’s easy to become rusty if you aren’t using a skill. We wanted to make this refresher available to all pilots for free in the hopes that it makes flying a bit safer for all of us.”
PilotWorkshops.com was founded in 2005 and is best-known for its free “Pilot’s Tip of the Week” emails received by more than 100,000 pilots each week. Created by a roster of nationally known flight instructors and experts, these tips cover single pilot IFR operations, weather, airmanship, ATC communications, emergencies and more.
PilotWorkshops also creates and sells a range of pilot proficiency programs including its IFR Mastery scenario-based training.
