WINGS Weekend in Illinois Changes to WINGS Friday

As part of the ongoing Illinois WINGS Workshops, WINGS Weekend has become WINGS Friday and will be held July 7 at the Coles County Memorial Airport.

The day long workshop will feature presentations and workshops where you will earn WINGS credit for all three knowledge tasks. In addition, you’ll receive information on “WINGS Made Easy” to give to your flight instructor so you can complete your WINGS phase in an expedient manner. As an added bonus, attendees will receive the latest version of the Illinois Airport Directory. WINGS flight activities will not be scheduled during this event. However, instructors who attend may be willing to fly with participants.

Remember, a WINGS phase qualifies as a flight review. The workshop will benefit pilots who have completed AOPA’s Rusty Pilot Program by giving them knowledge credit for their WINGS phase. This will expedite the process of completing a flight review.

The WINGS Friday Workshop will provide an opportunity to learn about current issues in aviation and to mingle with fellow pilots. Speakers include Dr. Gregory Ostrom, AME; Steve Goetz, SIU; Andy Dow, Great River Aviation; Warren Smith, Springfield FSDO; and Dennis Jarman, IDOT – Division of Aeronautics.

Topics are arranged so attending either the morning sessions or the afternoon sessions will complete the requirements for WINGS knowledge credits 1, 2 and 3. Or you may wish to spend the day.
