Volunteer Instructors Needed for EAA Pilot Proficiency Center

April 25, 2019EAA, flight instructors, and aviation companies are joining forces again during EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2019 to continue to expand and improve the EAA Pilot Proficiency Center and build on past years’ successes in improving pilot and CFI skills. During EAA AirVenture 2019 the EAA Pilot Proficiency Center (PPC) will again feature Tech Talks, as well as VFR and IFR flight scenarios in Redbird Flight AATDs.


The EAA Pilot Proficiency Center is a gathering and skill-building area for those with a desire to increase their knowledge, hone their abilities, and network with other passionate pilots. The PPC is promoting, showcasing, and encouraging the use of multiple tools and programs to stay engaged in year-round activities to advance proficiency and skill in general aviation.


Thirty-eight flight and ground instructors are needed to teach in the center each day. Fourteen CFIs each shift to operate Redbird LD advanced aviation training devices, two instructors each shift to operate a Redbird Xwind simulator, and two instructors in the ready room to assist pilots in selecting the scenarios they would like to fly.


Also, two instructors are needed to operate a Redbird MCX in the NAFI Professional Development Center (PDC) tent to train PPC instructors.


Admission to AirVenture and lunch will be provided for all volunteer instructors for the Pilot Proficiency Center. Also, lodging will be available. The early application increases your chance of getting the schedule you prefer.
