The AOPA Air Safety Institute’s safety seminars have been canceled until further notice, and its in-person Flight Instructor Refresher Courses have been canceled through June.
The Air Safety Institute said that “the health, welfare and safety of our attendees is of utmost importance. It is in the best interest of all parties to keep everyone safe while as a nation we work together to stop the spread of the coronavirus.”
“A pilot that consumes safety content regularly tends to be a safer pilot,” the institute said.
On March 16, the Air Safety Institute canceled its in-person FIRCs through the end of May and later extended the cancellations through June. The Air Safety Institute offers an online version of its FIRC (eFIRC) as an alternative. Those who enrolled in an in-person FIRC that has been canceled will receive a full refund.
