The Pilot Companion Program - This web page is REQUIRED READING for ALL Participants. If you are trying to RSVP for someone else, please bring them over to your computer right now and have them read all the information. While we appreciate the support of pilots, your non-flying pilot companion needs to read and reply on their own. Thanks!
Non-pilot flying companions learn about the fundamentals of flying, talking with ATC controllers, and basic emergency procedures. Please understand this is "ground" only. We strongly encourage every attendee to schedule flight time, and we're happy to help find a location.
We're proud to announce support from EAA Chapter 59!
