The Air Safety Foundation's new
Single-Pilot IFR online course, introduced just three weeks ago,
has already broken all previous records for pilot participation.
The free interactive program recorded 4,178 graduates in the last
half of October alone. That far surpasses the previous monthly
record of 3,380 online course graduates, set by ASF's Know Before
You Go program in June.
ASF Executive Director Bruce Landsberg noted, "Pilots taking
this course benefit from dozens of useful hints for organizing
cockpit resources, making in-flight decisions, and utilizing
effective communication with ATC."
Among the tips scattered throughout the program: using a small
sticky note on the panel to jot down decision height and the first
heading and altitude for the missed approach.
The 30-minute interactive online Single-Pilot IFR program offers
an immediate feedback quiz and provides a personalized graduation
certificate for pilots completing the course with a minimum of 70%
correct answers. Successful course completion also qualifies for
FAA Wings program credit.
All ASF interactive online courses are free and available to all
pilots. They are funded by tax-deductible contributions from
individual pilots. A complete list of courses is available
