Speaker(s):
Alan Lord - FAASTeam Lead Representative in San Juan
Brief Description:

"Just how long has it been since I have flown?"  Many pilots think about inactivity in terms of months or years before they need to meet with a CFI, when an honest assessment may reveal the need for some dual flying after a period of just weeks.  The goal should be to get proficient and at the same time meeting the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) requirements to act as PIC.

An excellent way to regain your skills after a layoff is by using the WINGS Program.  For that matter, it is an excellent way to maintain skills during a time of infrequent flying.  We will take this opportunity to update/refresh/or create everyone's knowledge about the WINGS Program.  That includes how it works, how it can benefit pilots and instructors, and how the evidence has shown that pilots who participate have fewer accidents.
