Stay Instrument Current and obtain FAA Wings Credits?

We have created Line-Oriented Flight Training (LOFT) scenarios to improve your  Decision Making and critical thinking while meeting the requirements to stay Instrument Current.

Each LOFT takes about a 2-hour lesson to complete, completing three approaches every three months while not only keep your instrument current but will keep you proficient!



Yes! you can get credit for the FAA WINGS Program doing our LOFT scenarios. 

To get FAA Safety Wings Credit, you will have to meet Instrument-Airplane ACS through the LOFT. There are 3 approaches per scenario.


 What happens if you are if you don’t meet the ACS standards? The instrument approaches still counts for your instrument currency, but we will just treat it as a flight lesson. 

Do you need six approaches? No Problem, just plan for a 3-hour lesson. Ideal plan? One of our LOFT and one local instrument currency scenarios.
