Ask an Air Traffic Controller                    Thur, June 17, 2021 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM EDT. 

It’s not uncommon for pilots to have some fear of interacting with Air Traffic Control (ATC) often concerned with making a mistake or of being judged by others on frequency. Not only is that the wrong attitude, but it can also deprive you of valuable services and even compromise safety. Controllers are humans just like pilots, and they’re actually there to help. Join ATC Specialist Eddie Albert from Cincinnati Approach Control and learn what controllers expect from pilots, plus some tips for your next request to ATC.

The presentation consists of Q&A from attendee question submissions. This format and opportunity to hear directly from a controller is one you won’t want to miss to get the straight talk from ATC.

Flight Simulators - Tools or Toys for Pilots                   Weds, August 25, 2021 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM EDT. 

Flight Simulators have been a popular topic over the past year. Partially because of the new Microsoft Flight Simulator program, but also because new lines of professional equipment have debuted along with training programs. Through all the increased interest, can we qualify an at home flight simulator as a tool or a toy? In this webinar Sporty's own Chris McGonegle will discuss how pilots can best use a simulator at home, what programs are beneficial to the pilot community, and the resources we have to increase our abilities in the airplane. Chris will cover what pieces of hardware work best for different experience levels, he'll also cover the one year old Microsoft Flight Simulator program, in addition to an in depth review of X-Plane 11, Prepar3d, and Infinite Flight.

Topics include:
- Popular flight simulator software and hardware options
- How to choose the right system to fit your needs
- How to use flight simulators to learn effectively
- Mistakes to avoid when flying at home
- Advantageous scenarios to fly with a simulator
- Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020
- X-Plane 11
- Prepar3d
- Infinite Flight

Chris McGonegle is a Commercial rated pilot and a graduate of the University of Cincinnati Aviation Academy. Chris is the New Product Manager with Sporty's Pilot shop and is hands on with all new simulator hardware Sporty's adds to their offering.
