Wings program to be revamped

The AOPA Air Safety Institute is among several general aviation groups working with the FAA to improve the Wings Pilot Proficiency Program, and you can help.

The Wings program has been around for years, delivering pilot education and training focused on common accident causes. Participants enjoy enhanced safety and accumulate credits that can satisfy the ground portion of the required flight review. The Air Safety Institute, along with other key aviation associations including the Society of Aviation and Flight Educators, the National Association of Flight Instructors, and the Experimental Aircraft Association, is participating in a working group to help the FAA focus resources to enhance the program’s features and website.

You are invited to participate in a survey about your experience with the Wings program and website—tell us about both the good and the bad.

Beyond increasing pilot proficiency, completion of Wings-approved material can lead to lower insurance rates, CFI certificate renewal, and completion of the ground portion of a flight review.

Your comments will help guide the shape of the Wings program for years to come. All responses are anonymous and confidential, and the survey should take about 10 minutes to complete. Thank you in advance for your time and willingness to help improve aviation safety!

The You Can Fly program and the Air Safety Institute are funded by charitable donations to the AOPA Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization. To be a part of the solution, visit
