AOPA’S AIR SAFETY INSTITUTE OFFERS VALUABLE REWARDS WITH THE FUN OF LEARNING
FREDERICK, Md. – The Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association Foundation’s (AOPA) Air Safety Institute (ASI) today launched the “Earn & Learn Safety Challenge,” an innovative new program that enters those who take aviation safety courses into a quarterly drawing for valuable aviation gear.
A new prize will be awarded each quarter, beginning with a Stratus 2 ADS-B receiver – an $899 value -- courtesy of Sporty’s Pilot Shop. The first prize winner will be announced in April
ASI’s safety courses are available to both AOPA members and non-members. Participants will automatically receive a prize entry for each completed free online safety course, Real Pilot Story or Accident Case Study. The more courses completed, the more chances each individual will have to win.
Pilots who are new to ASI courses can start with an easy, interactive safety challenge that will match them with a course tailored specifically to their experience level and flying style.
Visitors can take the challenge as many times as they like, or they can just go to the ASI website to view their online transcript to identify other interesting courses that will enter them in the prize drawing. Courses listed in the transcript with a gray star are eligible for the Learn & Earn drawing, while a gold star will depict courses that have been completed.
The Air Safety Institute’s “Learn & Earn Safety Challenge” will run throughout 2015, with four separate winners announced in April, July, October and January. Visit Learn & Earn for complete rules and additional details.
Safe pilots are always learning. It is ASI’s continuing goal to improve general aviation safety by providing pilots with a wealth of free information and educational resources. The Air Safety Institute’s programs are funded solely through donations from pilots dedicated to that same mission. Pilots can show their support by donating to the AOPA Foundation.
Since 1939, AOPA has protected the freedom to fly for thousands of pilots, aircraft owners and aviation enthusiasts. AOPA is the world’s largest aviation member association, with representatives based in Frederick, Md., Washington, D.C., Wichita, Kans., and seven regions across the United States.
