VFR Proficiency Course

VFR Proficiency Course

We are pleased to announce another offering of the VFR Pilot Proficiency course, scheduled for Saturday, October 28, 2023.  The course will be taught via Zoom from 8:00am- 12:00pm.


The VFR Pilot Proficiency course is designed for pilots that have been out of the ockpit for a few years, active pilots that would like to get up to speed on new developments in Part 91 flying, and student pilots working towards their Private or Commercial certificates.  Additionally, sUAS (i.e., drone pilots) interested in learning more about the national airspace system and general aviation operations will gain great value from the course.  This is a fantastic opportunity to engage with fellow pilots and receive a comprehensive refresher course on various topics that are essential to operating aircraft under Visual Flight Rules in the Washington DC Special Flight Rules Area and beyond.  We plan to discuss the following topics:

- Pilot Experience, Responsibilities and Cautions

- Airworthiness, Maintenance and Inspections

- Aviation Weather, Products and Flight Planning

-Aeronautical Decision Making and Risk Management


After attending the course, which costs $80, you will receive a certificate of completion indicating that you have satisfied the ground instruction requirement for the flight review per FAR 61.56.  The certificate will be accepted by any Aviation Adventures CFI within six months of the course.


If you would like to attend the course, please register by sending an email to kontanis@gmail.com or by calling the Aviation Adventures Manassas office at 703-530-7737 with your name, email address and a preferred phone number.  Upon receiving confirmation of payment, I will share the Zoom log-in information for the course.
