AOPA ASF Offers Extra Incentives For Attending
Flight instructors now
have even more reason to attend one of the Air Safety Foundation's
refresher courses. ASF will give away several door prizes during
each of their courses. And those who attend will also be entered in
a monthly drawing for an interactive DVD video courses, donated by
Sporty's Pilot Shop.
"These door prizes are more than just enticements to bring
flight instructors to the in-person refresher courses," said ASF
Executive Director Bruce Landsberg. "These tools will help
instructors teach more effectively."
The door prizes to be given away at each session include two
copies of a video specifically designed to help flight instructors
with the business side of being a flight instructor and an ASF
video on a critical safety topic, Weather Decision Making.
Two monthly prizes are Sporty's Instrument Rating Course and a
Sporty's Recreational/Private Pilot Course. Each course is a
complete training program that instructors can use with their
students to become safer and more knowledgeable and is valued at
approximately $200 each. Two monthly winners will be selected from
among those who attended the ASF in-person Flight Instructor
Refresher Courses that month.
The refresher courses are open to all pilots, even if they do
not hold a certificated flight instructor (CFI) rating. "In the
same way that instrument training can help a VFR pilot hone skills,
a refresher course for instructors can offer insights to all pilots
that can improve their flying skills," said Landsberg.
For pilots concerned about safety, ASF offers hundreds of free
safety seminars and online courses. Pilots who attend the free
seminars are eligible to win the quarterly door prize, a handheld
aviation radio, also provided by Sporty's Pilot Shop.
