Syllabi, Checkride Checklists Now Free From Qref
As founding members and an early provider of member benefits of
the Society of Aviation and Flight Educators (SAFE), Qref recently
announced its support for the goals of pilot training reform, and
is now offering PDF versions of its syllabi and checkride
checklists at no charge.
Acting on a recommendation from the training reform symposium,
Qref joins ASA, Sporty’s, and SAFE in providing free syllabi.
According to a Qref representative, “We praise ASA’s
and Sporty’s lead on this and challenge other courseware
providers to similarly offer online versions of their syllabi at no
charge. With a wide selection of syllabi freely available,
instructors and students should be able to find syllabi that work
best for them. All of aviation will benefit from this.”
Qref syllabi address all FAA requirements as well as the reality
of learning to fly in today’s complex and highly regulated
environment. With a combined thirty years of flight instructing
experience, the syllabi have been excerpted from Flight Instructor
Notebooks created by Bridgette Doremire and Gene Hudson.
Additionally, Qref’s Instrument Rating Syllabus was designed
for use with flight simulators, allowing students to practice in a
simulator before proving their knowledge and skills in flight,
thereby reducing costly flight hours.
