Flight Training Experience project to honor community

The tenth annual  Redbird Migration Flight Training Conference is going online October 21 and 22 because of coronavirus pandemic travel restrictions and safety concerns.

TSB Vice Chairman Bruce Landsberg and Hartzell Propeller Chairman Joe Brown were announced as speakers, along with AOPA President Mark Baker and others.

The AOPA Flight Training Experience Survey and accompanying in-person awards, which are typically presented during Redbird Migration, are taking a pause. AOPA instead sought stories that inspire, demonstrate resilience in the face of challenges, and show how the flight training community contributes to aviation and communities at large, via video vignettes that will be presented online during the virtual Migration.

“We believe it is important to celebrate the value and significance of the flight training community in this difficult time,” said Chris Moser, AOPA senior director of flight training education. “With the project, we will focus on the community, highlighting the inspiring stories of the flight training community, which has come together in support of one another to overcome the obstacles of climate and economy, and proved resilient in the face of adversity.” 

Redbird Flight Simulations CEO Todd Willinger said that taking Migration “directly into the homes and offices of flight training professionals” while still allowing them time to focus on their businesses “is the best way to gather our whole community responsibly and effectively.”
