Partners with Boeing & ForeFlight to provide members educational content Partners with Boeing & ForeFlight to provide members educational content

The Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association is joining with Boeing to produce a new educational webinar series offered to AOPA members. Boeing’s Jeppesen and ForeFlight teams will provide free monthly content in the webinar series, running from April through September, on important topics such as improving pilot proficiency, increasing awareness and fine-tuning navigational skills.

“AOPA is excited to partner with Boeing to provide exclusive educational content to AOPA members,” said Jiri Marousek, AOPA senior vice president of marketing. “During this complicated time, many of us don’t get to fly as much, or at all, so it’s even more important that pilots of all levels continue to keep their skills sharp and learn as much as possible in other ways, such as taking in some great online training. It doesn’t get better than having an opportunity to provide additional knowledge to our members from the experts at Boeing.”

Both Jeppesen and ForeFlight have extensive experience providing webinars, backed by a team of aviation professionals and subject-matter experts to answer questions, provide assistance, and elevate pilot knowledge of navigational tools.

“The work AOPA does to bring the flying community together, and resource them with the best and latest information is absolutely critical,” said Syd Blocher, Boeing’s vice president of business and general aviation services. “We are pleased to have our experts support AOPA members by furthering their education and proficiency.”

ForeFlight will present the first episode in the webinar series on April 21, highlighting Cross Country Flight Planning. In this webinar, viewers will learn how to plan a cross country flight using ForeFlight – while applying tools that make planning easier and help prepare for inflight emergencies. The webinar will also instruct pilots on how to download important data, plan a route, generate a Navlog and briefing, and more.
