The Ace Advantage:

Other FIRCs might focus on regurgitating basic pilot knowledge, or studying vague academic concepts that don’t help you much in the real world.

Not us!

We bring you fresh, relevant, real-world information that will keep you sharp as an instructor.

Our FIRC presents information in a way similar to an article in an aviation magazine (as opposed to the typical list of bulleted facts that become dull after a few pages).

For example, we incorporate aviation accident cases from the NTSB database as well as the Aviation Safety Reporting System (ASRS) into our course. We dissect and evaluate what caused the accidents, how they could have been prevented, and incorporate as many learning points into the discussion as we can. This approach is not only better at teaching (because the information is presented in a context that makes sense); it’s also a lot more interesting.

That’s just a small snapshot of the types of interesting, useful, and beneficial information you can expect to see in our FAA-Approved online Flight Instructor Refresher Course (FIRC).
