AOPA Premier Partner PilotWorkshops is offering a new series of personal training sessions for instrument-rated pilots who want to knock off rust or build confidence in their skills. The sessions will be offered at flight schools in six states.
IFR Bootcamp is a daylong session of scenario-based missions flown on an FAA-approved simulator. To increase the realism, the simulator utilizes the PilotEdge voice and data network to provide live air traffic control services during the session.
The simulators can be configured to Beechcraft, Cessna, Cirrus, and Piper aircraft, with more to come. Instrument panels support steam gauges, and the Garmin 430/530 and G1000, Avidyne, or Perspective avionics suites, PilotWorkshops said. Bootcamps will be offered in California, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, New Hampshire, and Texas.
Bootcamps will begin in July. Pricing and schedules are being finalized. For more information, see the website and sign up for emails that will include discount promotional codes.
Pilot Training and Certification,
The FAA has withdrawn a rule that would have allowed 20 hours of simulator instruction to count toward the instrument rating.
The pilot wasn’t the first “expert” ever humbled by an icing encounter. Here was a chance for redemption.
In an effort to remove obstacles to pilot participation in potentially lifesaving training, the American Bonanza Society will make its online Beechcraft Pilot Proficiency Program available to members free of charge.
