SocialFlight, the aviation industry’s leading FREE web and mobile app for finding events, airport restaurants, and interesting places to fly, announced the launch of their new FAA Learning System. Developed in collaboration with the FAA Safety Team (FAASTeam), the new system provides on-demand, accredited video education for pilots, A&P/IAs and other FAA-certificated Aviation Maintenance Technicians (AMTs) at no cost to course participants.

The FAASTeam’s WINGS Pilot Proficiency Program is a voluntary pilot training and safety initiative. It is designed to promote air safety by encouraging general aviation pilots to maintain flying proficiency through the use of online learning, in-person seminars, and tailored flight training. Similarly, the FAA’s AMT Awards program encourages AMTs and employers to take advantage of initial and recurrent training by issuing awards based on training received in one calendar year.

The latest release (8.0) of SocialFlight.com and the FREE SocialFlight mobile apps incorporate a library of FAASTeam accredited educational video programs, content-based quizzes, and links to additional reference materials where applicable.

For A&P Mechanics with Inspection Authorization (IA), the SocialFlight FAA Learning System includes FAA accepted IA refresher training pursuant to Title 14 CFR part 65, § 65.93(a)(4). Per the FARs, A&P/IA mechanics may complete 8 hours of accepted training per year in order to qualify for renewal of their FAA Inspection Authorization.

Upon successful completion of a training program, the SocialFlight system automatically updates the user’s account on FAASafety.gov with the appropriate course credits towards their WINGS/AMT program goals. For IA refresher training, the SocialFlight system issues certificates of completion that may be submitted to the FAA Flight Standards District Office (FSDO) along with the A&P/IA’s Inspection Authorization renewal application.

“Embracing new technology is the key to reaching more pilots and educating them about aviation safety.” said Barry Schiff, renowned pilot, author and aviation educator. “By making the program free, on-demand, and offering FAA credit, SocialFlight’s FAA Learning System makes it easier than ever for pilots and mechanics to continue learning and refining their skills.”

SocialFlight’s FAA Learning System was developed in collaboration with the FAA Safety Team, as well as SocialFlight’s partners including Aspen Avionics, Avidyne, Bose, Continental Aerospace Technologies, Hartzell Propellers, Lightspeed, Masimo Health, Tempest, Wipaire, Barry & Brian Schiff, Mike Busch and many others. The library of educational content is growing quickly with interesting and timely safety programs added regularly.

SocialFlight is a FREE App available on the App Store for iPhone and iPad. It is also available on the Google Play Store for Android Phones and Tablets, as well as on the web at www.SocialFlight.com.
