In partnership with Redbird Flight Simulations, the Society of Aviation and Flight Educators (SAFE) will present its first regional Pilot Proficiency Project™ at Skyport in San Marcos, TX on October 26-27, 2013. The Project brings valuable proficiency training to pilots by combining relevant safety forums, challenging simulator training sessions, food, and camaraderie.

Forums at Skyport will be presented by some of the country's top aviation educators, including Master Instructors, National CFIs of the Year, and noted subject matter experts such as Doug Stewart, Rich Stowell, Tony Johnstone, and Kay Sundaram Greenfield (SAFE members all). The Project will include a moderated panel on iPad Best Practices for Flight Planning featuring representatives from ForeFlight, Garmin, iFlightPlanner and WingX Pro. Ten different simulator scenarios co-developed by SAFE instructors and the Redbird team will be available in Redbird simulators.
