So you don't have a lot of time but you want to stay current on safety-related issues? Try the AOPA Air Safety Foundation's minicourses. They only take 5 to 15 minutes each to complete. Say you want to understand the Visual Warning System, the new laser signaling system surrounding the Washington, D.C., Air Defense Identification Zone (ADIZ). Or perhaps your FBO just installed a Garmin 430/530 GPS receiver in your favorite airplane and you'd like a quick course in how to use it. The AOPA Air Safety Foundation has minicourses to address each of these situations.
