Perhaps you have a little extra time indoors with all that is going on in the world these days...

A lot of good material has been put up from the American Bonanza Society on the FAA Wings site. Topics such as: Avoiding Gear Up Landings, BasicMed, Emergency Procedures and Basic Airmanship courses. Each course grants FAA Wings credits and many apply to both Basic and Advanced Wings credit.

Remember, completing 3 of these FREE on line courses counts as the ground school requirement for your BFR. In addition, many of the aircraft insurers will discount your renewals by 10% if you are actively participating.

The link to FAA Wings may be found here: https://www.faasafety.gov/wings/pub/learn_more.aspx

March 19, 2020 - A number of EAA chapters have contacted headquarters regarding guidance, options, and cautions regarding chapter meetings and events, including Young Eagles rallies, in conjunction with the coronavirus. Here is some guidance for those chapter leaders, as the situation has evolved greatly over the past week and will likely continue to evolve.

Communicate with your local public health officials (city, county, etc.). They will have the best overview on the local situation regarding public events. Many states have this week instituted limits on public gatherings. Abide by those state and federal declarations.

Most states have closed schools as a precaution and youth organizations have canceled events for the immediate future. Unless your state is allowing youth activities to take place, EAA recommends postponing those events at this time.

As far as chapter meetings, use common sense. Decide whether to hold the meeting after considering the current restrictions that may be in effect in your area, any risk factors for your chapter, etc.

Any EAA members or chapter officers who do not feel well should not participate in chapter events at this time. Emphasize that the safety and health of all is the primary priority in any decision that is made.

Options for sharing aviation information in place of a regular EAA chapter meeting could include such activities as a phone conference on current chapter activities, inviting chapter members to engage in online activities such as EAA webinars, or even a Facebook Live or other online webcast of a member showing off a current project.

Your local chapter has a better gauge on the situation in your community than we at EAA headquarters. We will continue to advise chapters of the latest information we have available.
General health and safety tips

All people should become familiar with the CDC's suggested health precautions, which include:

Washing your hands for 20 seconds and using alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
When coughing and sneezing, cover mouth and nose with flexed elbow or tissue – discard tissue immediately into a closed bin.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
Bring personal hand sanitizer and wipes with you to all public places.
Stay home if you have a fever or feel unwell, or if local health authorities have mandated any specific actions as part of a public health emergency.

Social distancing in a GA aircraft can be a challenge...

Here is an example of protective gear for that next flight:

Air Safety Institute Cancels In-Person Safety Seminars And SOme FIRCs
Please check this page for updates

The Air Safety Institute recognizes that our members have concerns regarding the coronavirus and believe that the health, welfare and safety of our attendees is of utmost importance. It is in the best interest of all parties to keep everyone safe while as a nation we work together to stop the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19). For that reason, ASI is canceling our safety seminars until further notice.

We regret the inconvenience this might cause, but since you’ve already set aside this time to come to a safety seminar, please visit our YouTube channel and watch our latest Accident Case Study or one of our Real Pilot Stories videos. You can also visit our Safety Spotlights page and earn WINGs credits. A pilot that consumes safety content regularly tends to be a safer pilot.

In-person FIRC classes are canceled through the end of June, please check back regularly for updates. We are aware that canceling them with short notice would put many of our customers at risk of losing their flight instructor privileges. We will fully refund any in-person FIRC cancellations. In the event we canceled your FIRC location, or if you decided to cancel, there is an online version of our FIRC (eFIRC) available as an alternative. CFIs who registered for an ASI FIRC and decide not to travel may contact AOPA (800-872-2672, 8:30-6:00 EDT M-F) for a full refund or to discuss the online option.
