While initial and recurrent training for glass cockpit and high performance aircraft is readily available, pilots of “vintage” aircraft often find themselves out of luck when it comes to leading edge recurrent training, even though their beloved older aircraft make up the majority of the general aviation fleet.
Sporty’s Flight Center is filling this training void with a special recurrent training weekend, scheduled for Aug. 11-14. Dubbed “Sporty’s Summer Camp for Pilots,” the training will feature dual instruction by Sporty’s Academy instructors either in the pilot’s own aircraft, or in one of Sporty’s, including the Cessna 172, 182, Beechcraft A36, and Piper Aztec models. Each day will feature choices of ground schools on pertinent topics. The dual and ground instruction sessions are FAA WINGS accepted.
While the pilots are enjoying their training, their families will find a wide variety of recreational and cultural opportunities available, making this event a great family mini-vacation, Sporty’s officials said. Each day’s learning will be capped off with an evening social, plus a Saturday “Graduation Banquet” with featured speaker Phil Boyer, former president of AOPA.
