Civil Air Patrol Partners With FAA For Safety Training

Provides CAP Members With Automatic Education Credits

Civil Air Patrol has established a safety education partnership with the FAA that will provide CAP members with automatic education credits for completing safety education within the FAA’s WINGS Pilot Proficiency Program.

The WINGS program objective is to address primary accident-causing issues that plague the general aviation community. The FAA hopes the program will help reduce the number of accidents it sees each year resulting from the same causes. CAP members will benefit from this relationship by receiving credit toward CAP safety education requirements upon completion of FAA-approved courses.

The WINGS program, which is available to all aviation enthusiasts online, helps aviators and aviation enthusiasts construct an educational curriculum suitable for their individual flight requirements. It emphasizes flight proficiency by using the FAA’s Practical Test Standards.

CAP requires all members to complete safety education at set intervals, which has helped improve the organization’s overall safety results in air and ground operations. Providing increased awareness through education complements CAP’s safety management system. “We are proud of our relationship with the FAA,” said CAP National Commander Maj. Gen. Chuck Carr, adding, “recurrent training programs like this one help all pilots reach their highest potential and maintain a high level of safety and proficiency.”
