SAFE Meet-Up Demonstrates EAA Proficiency365

by David St. George (Lifetime Member) on January 14, 2020

We had a great SAFE Meet-Up of NYC aviation educators at “Pilot Proficiency International” on the Farmingdale Airport (KFRG) last night. In addition to enjoying homemade lasagna, the assembled CFIs got to learn how the EAA Proficiency365 scenarios are deployed on Redbird simulators around the country. Only qualified CFIs can effectively present this useful profiles. With more trained CFIs these tools will be available all over the USA.

SAFE is also building out the Extended Envelope Training for the simulators with the “Low Country Approach” already up and functioning. This training is more fully explained (with a full flight syllabus) at the SAFE CFI-PRO™ workshops (Next at Sporty’s Pilot Shops on June 10/11th).
