Rusty Pilots In-Person Seminars


An in-person Rusty Pilots seminar allows you to meet and talk with people in the same position you are. You will realize immediately; you are not alone. There are hundreds of thousands of people who are rusty and thinking of getting current just like you.

An in-person seminar will also give you a chance to interact with the presenter, the host organization, and CFI’s. You’ll be able to ask questions, plan a course of action, and schedule a lesson or flight review. Not only that, you’ll be surrounded by other pilots! These are the reasons the Rusty Pilots seminars have become so popular over the past few years.

After attending a Rusty Pilots seminar, you’ll receive FAA Wings credits* and an endorsement for your logbook.

* Prior to attending a safety seminar, please review and abide by current CDC, State, and Local health guidelines.

Sporty's Pilot Shop

AOPA has enjoyed a partnership with Sporty’s that began long before the company became a Supporting Sponsor in 2012. AOPA pilots have relied on Sporty’s products since the company was launched in the early 1960s, when founder chairman, Hal Shevers, started selling supplies to his flight students. But the relationship between Sporty’s and AOPA goes beyond pilot supplies. An AOPA member for more than 50 years, Hal pioneered the three-day ground school when he taught for the AOPA Air Safety Foundation in 1963. In the 50 plus years since, Sporty’s and AOPA have continued to partner on items critical to safety, fun and freedom to fly. Today, the dedication of Sporty’s master instructors, product specialists, and exemplary customer service representatives positions Sporty’s as the world premier pilot shop, producing an extensive line of aviation training materials, and operating its own flight school.
