Do you participate in a recurrent training program? Did you know that recurrent training is the foundation for safe aviation operations? In fact, it's required in airline operations, charter aircraft operations and most corporate CEO's mandate their pilots attend recurrent training! Why, because it reduces risk and increases the level of safety. So, ask yourself this question: Are you a safe pilot? Do you participate in a recurrent training program? The FAA Safety Teams WINGs Pilot Proficiency Program is the single important safeguard in aviation safety today! If you're not taking advantage of this opportunity, you are exposing your aviation operations to unnecessary risk! So, why not make a wise and safe decision, join the hundreds of pilots that have decided to be safe; participate in the FAA Safety Team's New WINGs Pilot Proficiency Program!

Do you have questions about the program or just want to learn more? Then this meeting is definitely for you! This is our opportunity to learn from the man that created the New WINGs Program; this is a special invitation to all airmen; don't miss this rare opportunity!

Back in 2003, Jim began the vision that subsequently became the faasafety.gov website and the new WINGs Program. Jim wants to meet with Western, NY area pilots and technicians to explain some of the Philosophy behind the programs as well as answer questions and obtain important feedback from us; the end users!. This promises to be a very interesting and informative briefing, you don't want to miss it!

Please register for this event to ensure your seat reservation. Guido Hassig, the area FAA Safety Team Program Manager will also be in attendance at this historic event to answer any questions about the local program.

Driving and Parking Instructions: Meeting will be in large hangar behind FBO operations building. If you are flying in, please park aircraft in the midfield parking area to stay away from pedestrians. Plenty of parking.

Jim will only be completing two briefings in New York State. The first is on July 2, 2008 commencing at 7PM. Can't make it to this one, join him in Rochester, NY on Monday, July 7, 2008 in a meeting at the Greater Rochester International Airport, also commencing at 7PM.
