Nothing strikes fear in a pilot like hearing “Possible pilot deviation, advise you call the tower.” In most cases, however, the reason for this request (or a letter from the FAA) is an honest mistake and may be resolved with penalty-free training.

Live Webinar Premieres December 8, 2020 at 8 PM.

The American Bonanza Society will be offering a free online presentation titled "FAA Remedial Training - Get Back In Your Beechcraft" on Tuesday, December 8, 2020.

  • How these changes affect us as pilots.
  • The most common pilot deviations, and how to avoid them.
  • Positive lessons from FAA Remedial Training.
  • Lessons from compliance case history.

This ABSWeb presentation is funded by generous donations from members of the American Bonanza Society.
