We are hoping that you are as healthy and well as you can be during this almost surreal time. We’re very fortunate to be able to say that our entire staff is healthy and well. With that said, just like everyone else, we’re not sure how much longer the Stay At Home Policy will last, but there’s no reason you can’t keep ahead of the curve with your aviation knowledge right from home for free.
The FAA offers some truly fantastic (mostly zero cost…the ones with a fee a very clearly labeled) online courses through their WINGS program. You’ll need to build a free FAA account and then you can select from dozens of online courses that you can take. You can learn more about the FAA WINGS program here: https://www.faasafety.gov/wings/pub/learn_more.aspx
You can view the course catalog here: https://faasafety.gov/gslac/ALC/course_catalog.aspx#catalog (click on the link, select “View all Available Courses” then select “Show Wings Courses”. You’ll need to spend a couple minutes to build your free FAA account if you don’t already have one in order to actually take the courses).
We’re also developing some webinar ground schools for aviation topics that we’ve found people tend to need the most help with. The first webinar will be free of charge and will be available on a first come first served basis. If you’re interested in signing up for the first webinar or have topics that you would like to see included in future online offerings – please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll be sending more information on the Take Flight Aviation Online Offerings soon.
Our phones are being forwarded to us at home – so give us a call or email if you have any questions or just want to say hello. We’re all going to get through this together!
