Society of Aviation and Flight Educators (SAFE) - Teaching Beyond the Minimums
This Program Outlines The Need To Teach Beyond The FAA Minimum Standards And Stay Motivated Through Lifetime Learning
Date and Time:
Wednesday, November 10, 2021, starting at 19:00 Central Standard Time (17:00 PST; 18:00 MST; 20:00 EST; 15:00 HST; 16:00 AKST; 18:00 Arizona; Thursday, November 11, 2021 01:00 GMT)
David St. George, Ron Timmermans
Brief Description:

This program focuses on the critical need to teach well beyond the FAA minimum certification standards and stay motivated with lifetime learning. (Do we aim for a 70% when taking any test?) For educators, the Master Instructor Program is an important way to stay motivated and demonstrate your commitment to lifetime learning. 

Safety is impossible in a vacuum. It requires high-level community standards and a "safety culture" to promote compliance and continuous learning. The FAASTeam WINGS Pilot Proficiency Program - WINGS -  provides exactly this kind of critical outreach and motivation for all pilots. Through in-person and online education, WINGS sets a high standard and enables continuous lifetime learning for pilots.

Bring your questions and comments for this LIVE event and challenge yourself to be a better pilot and educator with WINGS.
