The EAA Pilot Proficiency Center will be open throughout EAA AirVenture Oshkosh, the 63rd annual EAA fly-in convention, held July 20-26 at Wittman Regional Airport in Oshkosh. It is located just east of the FAA Control Tower on the AirVenture grounds.
“The awarding of FAA WINGS credits for the EAA Pilot Proficiency Center’s ‘Tech Talks’ at Oshkosh makes this area an even better place for pilots to learn and enhance their flying skills,” said Joe Brown, president of Hartzell Propeller and a member of EAA’s board of directors. “Our goal is to bring additional recognition to the use of simulator-based scenarios that hone basic piloting skills. We’re very pleased we can reward this type of training when used as part of an aviator’s annual instruction regime, just like the pros do.”
Along with Tech Talks, the center will feature IFR and VFR flight scenarios in Redbird flight simulators, the opportunity to talk with certificated flight instructors, and engage in other discussion opportunities to improve piloting skills.
The EAA Pilot Proficiency Center is open to all pilots and non-pilots who want to improve their flying skills and will feature IFR and basic airmanship challenges and forum programs.
