VFR Rusty Pilot Course

VFR Rusty Pilot Course

Aviation Adventures is pleased to announce the 2016 edition of the Rusty Pilot Course, scheduled for February 28, 2016 from 8am - 12pm at the Manassas Regional Airport!  This is the original Rusty Pilot course which AOPA used in part, to develop their national Rusty Pilots program.

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 the 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 Aviation Adventures CFI within six months of the course.


If you would like to attend, 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!
