WINGS - Removing the Mystery and Michael Cavanaugh Master Pilot Award Ceremony
With your flying, let the WINGS Program provide a path to competency and proficiency; not just completing currency requirements!
Date and Time:
Saturday, February 5, 2022, starting at 10:00 Central Standard Time Download Calendar File
Ryan Newman - FAASTeam Program Manager
Brief Description:

The WINGS Program (The Pilot Proficiency Program) is a proven premise that pilots who maintain both currency and proficiency in the basics of flight will enjoy a safer and more stress-free flying experience.

The WINGS Program encourages an ongoing training program that provides the Airman an opportunity to fly regularly with a Flight Instructor. The program is most effective if the training is routinely accomplished throughout the year, thus allowing the Airman to fly in different seasons and flight conditions.

Reviewing and refreshing your knowledge is just as crucial as actual flying. There are many opportunities to complete online courses, attend seminars & webinars, and other events to meet this goal. In addition, many 3rd party activities, such as those offered by AOPA Air Safety Foundation, ASA, Sporty’s, Gleim Publications, and others, qualify for WINGS credit and will indicate such recognition on their websites.

Here's the agenda -
•  How to Create a WINGS Account
•  WINGS – The Basic Requirements
•  How to Earn Knowledge Credits
•  How to Earn Flight Credits
•  The role of the FAASTeam Representative
•  The Role of the CFI
•  Recommended Path to Success

Please do not walk across the ramp to the terminal building!  VCT has commercial airline service, and that walk will become a TSA thing!  Instead, exit the FBO and walk around the hangar to the terminal. Walk time???  Third Class pilots three minutes, Second Class pilots two minutes, First Class pilots one minute!  Yeah, for the Basic Med, we'll send for a SkyCap from the Terminal!!!
