Volunteer Flight Instructors Sought for AirVenture

NAFI is recruiting flight instructors to staff the EAA Pilot Proficiency Neighborhood (PPN) at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh this year.

The PPN will have an IFR Proficiency Center and a Stick & Rudder Proficiency Center. In the proficiency centers pilots will fly challenging scenarios under the guidance of volunteer flight instructors on Redbird simulators (AATDs).

The PPN will operate Monday through Saturday during AirVenture. Eighteen flight instructors are needed each day: Three CFIIs for the IFR Center, and six CFIs for the Stick & Rudder Center to operate two sessions each day. There is a morning session from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and an afternoon session from 1 p.m to 5 p.m.
EAA will provide wristbands, lodging, lunch and local transportation. Lodging will be in the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh dormitories. The rooms are air-conditioned.
