What is FAA WINGS – Pilot Proficiency Program?
The WINGS Program is based on the premise that pilots who maintain currency and proficiency in the basics of flight will enjoy a safer and more stress-free flying experience. The WINGS Program consists of learning activities and flight tasks selected to address the documented causal factors of aircraft accidents.
Reviewing and refreshing your knowledge is just as important as actual flying. To meet this goal, the WINGS Program provides many opportunities to complete online courses, attend seminars and other events, and participate in webinars. Many third-party providers like AOPA, Sporty’s, PlaneEnglish, and others provide courses that qualify for WINGS credits and support this effort.
Who can participate in the WINGS Program?
All pilots holding a U.S. pilot certificate may participate in the WINGS Program. Student pilots are encouraged to participate in the WINGS Program. They will receive Phase 1 at the Basic Level upon satisfactory completion of their Private Pilot practical test and completion of an online course on Aeronautical Decision Making.
