EAA Pilot Proficiency Center is promoting, showcasing, and encouraging the use of multiple tools and programs to stay engaged in a year-round activity to advance proficiency and skill in general aviation. The focus is beyond the week at AirVenture and on developing a year-round training routine at home. You may fly all the Pilot Proficiency simulator missions any time not just during this one week of July. This is EAA Proficiency365!
