  • Pilot Proficiency Training

    Know the difference between keeping current and becoming proficient. The FAA sets minimum standards for currency, but proficiency means that you have taken the time to fully train and are ready to handle any situation at any time. Being current under the regulations means you have met the requirements to act as a pilot in command of an aircraft. Being proficient means that you are fully competent in those actions. In other words, you understand the normal operations as well as the “what-if” readiness for your type of flying. #FlySafe
