Air Safety Institute staff
Chances are, you’ve participated in one of the Air Safety Institute’s free safety education programs—either online or at an in-person seminar. With more than 1 million contacts into the pilot community each year, the Air Safety Institute has tremendous reach.
Now, the institute has launched a new way to bring its free safety education content to anyone interested in sharing general aviation safety information at local community events. Just visit the newly launched Web page to select the program or programs you want, download them, and you’re all set for your next flying club or fly-in safety meeting, or ground school event at your FBO and flight school. All we ask is that you let us know, after your meeting, how many people were in attendance.
These programs are among those available:
New content will be added quarterly, so if you don’t see the program you want, be sure to check back often.
Many Air Safety Institute products are eligible for FAA Wings credit and AOPA Accident Forgiveness. In addition, you may download certificates of completion from your Air Safety Institute Transcript.
The Air Safety Institute is a division of the nonprofit AOPA Foundation. Funding for Air Safety Institute safety programs comes from the generosity of pilots like you.

Your CFII usually follows up route-planning drilling with a review of appropriate regulations, and today’s selection is 14 CFR 91.185, "IFR Operations: Two-way radio communications failure."
