AOPA Air Safety Foundation SafetyCasts

The AOPA Air Safety Foundation has started offering on-demand (free) webinars. These programs are video streams of popular safety programs that AOPA ASF has presented at aviation gatherings. You don’t have to be an AOPA member to watch these programs.

The online courses and other resources available from the AOPA Air Safety Foundation are under-utilized references and learning tools, and that’s a shame. They’re terrific training aids for pilots and flight instructors.

Bruce Landsberg, executive director of the AOPA ASF, notes that pilots can keep a transcript of ASF courses that they complete and can return to finish courses they started but didn’t have time to finish. Three insurance underwriters now grant accident forgiveness if pilots attend a live ASF seminar or complete an approved online course every 6 months.

By then end of the year AOPA ASF should have 21 interactive programs available on its Web site.
