Rusty Pilot Seminar

Rusty Pilot Seminar

Aviation Adventures is pleased to announce the 2015 edition of the Rusty Pilot Course, scheduled on February 21, 2015, from 8am - 12pm at the Manassas Regional Airport!  This course was featured in the March 2014 edition of the AOPA magazine and the November 2013 edition of AOPA Flight Training.

The course is designed for pilots that have been out of the cockpit for a few years, active pilots that would like to get up to speed on new developments in Part 91 flying, and student pilots working towards their Private or Commercial certificates.  This is a fantastic opportunity to meet fellow pilots and receive a comprehensive refresher course on various topics that are essential to operating aircraft under Visual Flight Rules in the Washington, DC SFRA and beyond.  We plan to discuss the following topics:

Pilot Experience, Responsibilities, and Cautions

Airworthiness, Maintenance, and Inspections

Airports, Airspace, and SFRA Procedures

Aviation Weather Products and Flight Planning

Aeronautical Decision Making and Risk Management

Also, please feel free to pass along suggestions for any additional topics that you would like to discuss.

The cost is $60 and you will receive a certificate of completion indicating that you have satisfied the ground instruction requirement for the flight review per FAR 61.56.  The certificate will be accepted by any Aviaiton Adventures CFI within six months of the course. 

If you would like to attent, please register by sending an email to kontanis@gmail.com or by calling the Aviation Adventures Manassas Office at 703-530-7737 with your name, email address, and a preferred phone number.  This will help us plan for course materials.

Space is limited to approximately 40 participants, so please reserve your position soon!

Hope to see you there!
