New Location, New Format for Pilot Proficiency Center at AirVenture 2022

May 12, 2022 — The popular Pilot Proficiency Center programs during EAA AirVenture Oshkosh, where pilots can improve their decision-making and flying skills, will be one of the first major events in the new Pilot Proficiency Center located adjacent to the EAA Aviation Museum. The programs, which are free of charge, had previously been located in a tent pavilion on the Four Corners on the AirVenture grounds.

“This new location offers pilots expanded opportunities to do deep-dives on scenarios and subjects that will make them better aviators, led by some of the leading instructors in the nation,” said Jeremy Desruisseaux, EAA’s director of flight proficiency. “The new facilities in the EAA Aviation Center also give participants a top-notch location that is a year-round presence, allowing for enhanced experiences for those who are a part of this valuable program.”

This year’s expanded schedule gives participants the opportunity for three breakout sessions in numerous categories during half-day clinics. Those categories include:

  • Killer Procedures
  • Learn-to-Turn
  • Backcountry Awareness
  • The Art of IFR
  • CFI-to-CFI
  • Stick & Rudder Redux
  • The Amateur-Built Flight Test Experience

Complete schedules of topics and speakers will be available in the coming days. Participants are reminded that the half-day sessions will be held at the EAA Aviation Center, and pre-registration is required. Walk-in slots will only be made available if unfilled slots remain after pre-registration. Further details will be announced when registration officially opens.

The AirVenture 2022 Pilot Proficiency Center is supported by Hartzell Propeller, Hartzell Engine Technologies, and NATCA. Simulators are sponsored by Redbird Flight Simulators, with Tech Talks sponsored by The Boeing Company. BOSE Aviation supplies the official headset of the EAA Pilot Proficiency Center.
