PilotWorkshops.com celebrates 10,000th WINGS course completion

PilotWorkshops.com reports that the FAA has now issued over 10,000 WINGS course completion credits for its online pilot proficiency training courses.

The company has been creating WINGS-approved training programs since 2006.

“Many of our customers participate in the FAA WINGS program and appreciate the convenience of being able to continue their proficiency training while earning WINGS credits,” said Pilotworkshops’ founder Mark Robidoux.

National FAASTeam Manager Kevin Clover stated, “Pilotworkshops has been a strong supporter of the WINGS program. They have helped thousands of pilots maintain and improve their proficiency and safety.”

The majority of the course completion credits issued by PilotWorkshops are through its IFR Mastery program. This monthly, scenario-based training uses a combination of video, audio, and forum discussion to place a pilot in a challenging instrument flight scenario, test their decision-making, and provide expert advice and tips for handling the scenario.

PilotWorkshops.com LLC was founded in 2005 and is best-known for its free “Pilot’s Tip of the Week” emails received by more than 120,000 pilots each week. Created by their roster of nationally known flight instructors and experts, these tips cover single pilot IFR operations, weather, airmanship, ATC communications, emergencies and more using a unique, multi-media format. PilotWorkshops also creates and sells a range of pilot proficiency programs including their IFR Mastery scenario-based training.

    That’s cool that you’re developing courses to help pilots with proficiency and safety. There are too many pilots out there that are an accident waiting to happen. Unfortunately, the ones who could benefit from it ate the ones that won’t take advantage of it.

    Very inspiring article. Now is the time for some empirical testing. Can we get a trained researcher to take a sample of those participating in Wings and a sample from the rest of the population and determine if there is a statistically significant difference in the accident between these two groups. Positive assurance will do a great deal to promote the training programs.
