In an effort to continually improve safe operation of Club aircraft, the club Board voted to offer flight time discounts to Members who complete a free AOPA Air Safety Institute online course. There are many free ASI courses on safety topics ranging from ground operations to airspace and weather issues to GPS usage and each of them satisfy the FAA Wings Program ground instruction requirement. This not only gives you an incentive to stay current, but it also lowers your rental cost. It’s a win-win situation.
Here is how this works…..
After completing an ASI online course, simply submit a copy of your “certificate of completion” to the BEFC Safety Officer. The Safety Officer will add the certificate to your file and notify the Board that you qualify for the discount. If by the end of the next calendar month, you fly a minimum of one hour in any Club aircraft, you will receive a $10.00 credit on your flying bill. You may only submit one certificate per month, each certificate must be for a different course, each certificate must be submitted within one month of completion, and you will only receive one credit per billing cycle.
A similar offer is also extended to Members who complete a phase of the FAA Wings Program. When you receive your certificate from the FAA, simply submit a copy of it to the ACAC Safety Officer. The Safety Officer will add the certificate to your file and notify the board that you qualify for the discount. You will receive a $10.00 credit on your flying bill.
Theoretically, you could reduce your annual flying expenses by $130.00!
