About the EAA Pilot Proficiency Center

The EAA Pilot Proficiency Center (PPC) is a skill building and training center for pilots at AirVenture. It's purpose is to combine relevant safety forums with challenging simulator training sessions that address key safety of flight issues and to also make pilots aware of the enormous benefit of flight simulation devices for proficiency training at home.

Centrally located on the Four Corners at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh, the PPC features fourteen advanced aviation training devices with an extensive offering of simulation scenarios and exercises focused on such areas as loss of control, crosswind landings, IFR approaches and decision making.   All sessions include comprehensive flight evaluation and debriefing opportunities that suggest areas of concentration for further training back home and throughout the flying season.

The EAA Pilot Proficiency Center also features a full schedule of Tech Talks with topics sure to interest pilots of all types, skill level, and experience.
