Airlines, aircraft manufacturers, and many other industry insiders are concerned with the quality of flight training options, especially in light of pilot shortages. An upgrade to a popular app may provide a solution to some of the biggest problems that plague the industry.
Industry insiders have reason to be concerned about the quality of training. Jamie Beckett of General Aviation News reports that 80% of student pilots drop out of training before receiving their pilot certificate. Swayne Martin of Bold Method, cites “lack of structured training” as the primary reason for the dismal dropout rate. Continue reading Software Addresses Dismal Flight School Failure Rate
It’s unusual for pilots to be happy with a rule change from the FAA. But the new BasicMed rule change that went into effect on May 1, 2017 has many of them celebrating. And some are also a bit confused. The contradiction can be summed up in two quotes.
“Much of the general aviation community is ecstatic about BasicMed,” AOPA President Mark Baker said of the new alternative to medical certification.
“I read about the other things that I had to do to fly under BasicMed and I had the overwhelming feeling that if I were doing this for real I would just go get an FAA medical because that would be less trouble.” Said Richard Collins in the Air Facts Journal.
Pilot Partner has added support for BasicMed to it’s Electronic Logbook Option. With this feature a pilot can easily keep track of any kind of FAA Medical and all of the requirements to act as a Pilot In Command. Pilot Partner will alert the user when a required action item is coming due.
