Aviation Safety Reporting Program
If you have been involved in, or observe, an incident or situation in which aviation safety may have been compromised, file a report with the Aviation Safety Reporting System. If you do so within 10 days of the incident, the FAA will waive fines and penalties, subject to certain limitations, for unintentional violations of FAA statues and regulations.
Download the ASRS form here, or fill out an online version.

A Good Pilot Never Stops Learning
… and we’ve got some of the best folks to learn from. Our instructor members teach because they love flying and instructing–not because they’re trying to build hours for an airline career. In fact, many of our teachers are already commercial pilots.  Find one who fits your learning style and then get out there.
