Been Out of the Cockpit For A while? Here’s How to Get Back In!  Get Back Into Flying!  Think you’ve lost too much and forgotten everything? Afraid it’ll be like starting over?  No worries, Rusty Pilots will get you back in the left seat fast!

Getting Back To Flying: Easier Than You Think

If you’re like more than 500,000 other pilots (that’s right, half a million), you’ve taken a little breather from flying. Maybe more than a little. Perhaps life threw you a curve. Maybe the pitter-patter of little feet, a growing business, or a medical setback had something to do with it. Whatever the case, things are different now. You’re back in the game and would like to start flying again. You’ve come to the right place.

A Rusty Pilots Seminar Gets You Started

AOPA has put together a fun, interactive program that gives you all the information you need to get current again. Our dynamic presenters will bring you up to speed on hot-button issues like medical reforms, weather briefings, preflight planning, FARs, and airspace. You’ll leave the seminar with a logbook endorsement attesting that you’ve completed three hours of ground training toward your Flight Review. And we’ll help you connect with flight instructors in your area so you can take the next step and quickly get back to active flying status. Best of all, Rusty Pilots seminars are FREE for AOPA members.

Life may have gotten in the way, but the dream of flight can be yours again. Returning to the skies is not as difficult as most rusty pilots think.
