Upcoming Webinars Schedule


Mental Health and FAA Medical Certification | Qualifies for FAA WINGS Credit

Thursday, February 15, 7 p.m. CST with Tom Charpentier

There has been a lot of discussion in the past year of the FAA’s approach to certification in mental health cases, and how this approach causes many pilots to be reluctant in seeking treatment. In this webinar, EAA Government Relations Director Tom Charpentier will discuss the current state of FAA policy, recent improvements to the handling of some cases, and EAA’s advocacy goals moving forward.


Maintaining Insurability

Wednesday, February 28, 7 p.m. CST with Tom Turner

Tom Turner from the American Bonanza Society Air Safety Foundation discusses the insurance challenges for pilots with low experience in type, pilots who want to maintain high levels of insurance protection, those flying harder-to-insure aircraft, and older pilots, and a strategy for making themselves better risks for otherwise hesitant insurance underwriters. We’ll cover:

  • Why aircraft insurance has become costlier and hard to get in recent years
  • The difference between insurance brokers, agents, and underwriters, and questions to ask each
  • A strategy for getting underwriters to see you as a better risk than the average airplane owner

Hosting a Flying Start Event 101

Tuesday, March 5, 7 p.m. CST

May 18 is International Learn to Fly Day, and your chapter is invited to participate by hosting a Flying Start event! Join this live webinar, and we review how to plan the perfect Flying Start event.

Unleaded AVGAS -- Cure or Curse? | Qualifies for FAA WINGS and AMT Credit

Wednesday, March 6, 7 p.m. CST with Mike Busch

In this webinar, Mike Busch explores what we know about valve recession and lead, and discusses how much of an issue this is likely to be.


Swallow and Travel Air | Museum Webinar Series

Tuesday, March 12, 7 p.m. CST with Chris Henry

One of the special things about Pioneer Airport is the opportunity to have flights right at the EAA Aviation Museum. We will talk about the two biplanes which can be not only seen by our visitors, but actually flown in by anyone wanting a ride.


Jumpers Away! Seeing and Avoiding Skydivers | Qualifies for FAA WINGS Credit

Wednesday, March 13, 7 p.m. CST

Skydivers may not be ADS-B equipped, but they share the same airspace as we pilots do. In order to see and avoid those who don’t mind jumping out of a perfectly sound airplane, we need to know how, where, and when skydivers operate. This FAA Safety Team WINGS award webinar will help you to anticipate their actions, altitudes, and location when you hear the magic words “Jumpers Away!” on the common traffic advisory frequency.


Fueling V F T - Learning from Mistakes to Prevent a Tragedy | Qualifies for FAA WINGS Credit

Wednesday, March 20, 7 p.m. CST with Keith Clark

Everyday aircraft are fueled, and what happens during this time is the key to preventing a tragedy. Keith Clark from Phillips 66 Aviation discusses proper communication of aircraft fuel orders and strategies to ensure verification. Keith reviews examples of past mistakes and how to learn from these mistakes to prevent another aircraft misfueling.


Young Eagles Rally Planning 101

Tuesday, March 26, 12 p.m. CST

Gear up for EAA’s International Young Eagles Day, scheduled for June 8, 2024. This webinar will cover rally planning best practices, how to utilize Young Eagles online registration/digital signature app, and other program updates!


Lessons from a Performance Chart | Qualifies for FAA WINGS Credit

Wednesday, March 27, 7 p.m. CST with Catherine Cavagnaro

We often rush through performance calculations to ensure our aircraft is up to the mission. Join Catherine Cavagnaro from ACE Aerobatics School as she explains that these charts have so much more to teach us than that. We'll consider takeoff performance and weight and balance, and learn important considerations for safe flight.
