I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the FIRC. After more than 30 years at this, I’ve taken a few. Live and online, I’ve seen quite a variety of study materials. Heck, when I started as a CFI these were 24 hours long, not the bargain basement 16 we’re mandated to do now.

It was a great course. A lot of work went into it and I appreciate it. AOPA is a tremendous resource.

This is a good course. Excellent topics, the guidance is valuable, the video clips are insightful (the seaplane tragedy in Human Factors should be mandatory viewing for all pilots), and the quizzes are well done.”
