This was my first time doing the online method. As a military helicopter flight instructor, I found a lot of the fixed wing stuff very interesting and I think it increased my awareness of what is going on in the aircraft I am sharing the airspace with. Also, there were several regulatory changes that I was unaware of so the refresher helped me out in that regard. The sessions on Automation, and ADS-B were my favorites because of the relevancy to me. William P. – Alabama
I would like to confirm to Aviation Seminars that your online FIRC I just completed was effective, informative and surprisingly fulfilling. I have been a faithful attendee at your weekend FIRCs for the past 17 yrs. I always looked forward to the experience of review and renewal with peers and their experiences to sharpen and clarify my instructional culture. However, this renewal season found me unable to schedule due to work/family conflicts. I was relieved to find that I could still attend online. I must say it was almost as though I was there with Kim Barnes and the class attendees. I heard and understood the discussion; I was able to follow along with the timely reference material; the testing process was efficient and interactive with appropriate feedback and as always, Aviation Seminars customer service was exemplary. Thank you for a great product and experience! Monte M. – Texas
A fine course, great to have the opportunity to talk to the presenter on the phone. Steven S. – New York
