Getting Together Uneventfully

Safer Cross-Country Flying

Many of us will be venturing out during the good weather months to attend gatherings and events. We might be heading for an aviation event, a wedding, a graduation party, a reunion, or just a flying vacation. We would like to be sure our journey to and from our event is uneventful.

This course, sponsored by the Avemco Insurance Company, will discuss airplane prep, skill sharpening, planning for the expected and the unexpected, establishing our personal minimums, our fitness to fly, and more.

This course consists of ten lessons. Each lesson includes a video and most also include additional supporting material to read. The supporting material is part of the course and will be included in the quiz at the completion of the course.

The course is self-paced and does not need to be completed all at once. Total time to complete varies with the individual, but is estimated at approximately one hour twenty minutes. The course is compatible with most personal devices.
