Four Flight Simulators Outfitted With EAA’s Virtual Flight Academy Will Be In Place
EAA notes that, ‘Along with all the experienced aviators at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh each year, The World’s Greatest Aviation Celebration inspires many others who find themselves asking, “I would love to learn to fly someday. What steps do I need to take to begin flight training?”‘
The Learn to Fly Center at AirVenture’s EAA Four Corners area can provide the information they need and kick-start their flight training journey.
“The ultimate mission of the Learn to Fly Center is to motivate, excite, and show attendees a clear pathway to those who are inspired to earn a pilot certificate,” said David Leiting, EAA’s membership development manager. “We love to see the passion of people who are eager to learn because of AirVenture, but we also know they need answers to their many questions.”
The EAA Learn to Fly Center will feature multiple stations, each dedicated to helping individuals take a step forward in their desire to learn to fly. CFIs, experienced pilots, and those fresh out of flight training will be on hand to help answer any questions about the flight training process. Special attention will be given to helping visitors select the correct certificate that fits their flying desires, finding an Aviation Medical Examiner in their area, and how EAA can help them through their training process.
Also in the center will be four flight simulators outfitted with EAA’s Virtual Flight Academy. Visitors will have the opportunity to fly a short introductory scenario, such as basic maneuvers and flying the traffic pattern. Users can access this same tool at home, via downloadable scenarios from EAA.org/VFA.
To accomplish this mission, EAA will need a great team of volunteers. Whether you are a CFI, student pilot, recently passed your checkride, or are simply passionate about getting others involved in flying, EAA has a volunteer slot for you. You can email David directly at [email protected] if you have an interest in volunteering at the Learn to Fly Center.
The Four Corners area, located at the intersection of Knapp Street and Celebration Way, also features the EAA Member Center, filled with information about all facets of EAA and AirVenture, and the popular Pilot Proficiency Center designed for enhancing skills and decision-making for current pilots.
