The Pilot Proficiency Center at Airventure is an assembly of best in class flight training tools and instructors dedicated to pilot proficiency and safety.
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.
The PPC has grown from an initial proof of concept lead by SAFE and Redbird Flight Simulations at Oshkosh in 2012 into a prominent venue anchored at one of the four corners of AirVenture's Boeing Plaza, thanks in large part to the support of the EAA and other prominent aviation industry partners.
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.
