AOPA’s Rusty Pilot courses are designed to reignite the passion of pilots who have let their currency lapse. Several flying clubs have hosted these seminars recently as a way to gain recognition in the aviation community, recruit new members, and to strengthen General Aviation as a whole. And there’s an added benefit for current pilots – the course serves as the ground portion of the biennial flight review, making it a great club activity for your current members as well.
