Flight Instructor Refresher Course (FIRC)

The next WisDOT FIRC is scheduled for November 1-2, 2014 at the EAA AirVenture Museum in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. The course will be updated with new topics in addition to the core topics that include Ethics and Professionalism, How To Give An Effective Flight Review, Pilot Deviations: Their Causes, How To Teach Effectively, and Creating A Culture of Safety.

The course is open to Certified Flight Instructors whose certificates expire in November and December 2014, or January and February of 2015. Other pilots can audit the course at a reduced fee and receive a certificate of completion.

Speakers at the FIRC will include several Designated Pilot Examiners (DPEs) who always provide an insightful perspective on flight training.
