    ATP Training Requirements – What you Need to Know Thursday, August 28 8:00pm ET Eric Radtke and Paul Jurgens

    Last July, the FAA released the final rule for the Pilot Certification and Qualification Requirements for Air Carrier Operations – better known as the ATP certification rule. The rule requires pilots to hold an air transport pilot certificate in order to fly for an airline.

    As part of these sweeping changes, regulations were also created for the new Restricted ATP (R-ATP) and the ATP Certification Training Program requirements that mandate all ATP applicants complete ground training in order to be eligible for the written.

    Join Sporty’s Chief Flight Instructors Eric Radtke and Paul Jurgens for a comprehensive overview of the new requirements as they explain a host of moving parts. Get your questions answered in this interactive presentation.

    ADS-B – A Pilot’s Guide Thursday, October 2 8:00pm ET John Zimmerman

    Automatic Dependent Surveillance Broadcast (better known as ADS-B) is a new technology that could revolutionize the way we fly. Unfortunately, much of the information related to ADS-B is unnecessarily confusing.

    So what is ADS-B? Why should you care about it? Can you just ignore it?

    No. While ADS-B may be confusing, it’s probably the most important technological change you will have to deal with as a pilot over the next two decades. So it’s worth the effort to learn this new language.

    Join Sporty’s John Zimmerman as he discusses what you really need to know about ADS-B “out” and ADS-B “in.” Learn about panel-mount ADS-B solutions from Garmin, Aspen and others, plus the exciting developments in the portable ADS-B market. We’ll cut through the jargon so you understand what’s important – and what’s not.
