EAA Flight Advisors
The EAA Flight Advisor program helps with everything from finding the right instructor and planning a first flight to determining the types of additional training needed. Flight advisors are here to counsel members considering purchasing an aircraft, preparing for flight in a newly built or restored aircraft, or looking to transition to a high performance or unfamiliar aircraft.
If your project is already completed and flying, or if you have recently purchased an airplane you plan to fly soon, check out EAA's Flight Advisor program. The program was developed in the mid-1990s as another volunteer opportunity for pilots with flight test experience to pass along knowledge to help builders and flyers alike make safe, sound choices. These choices start at the decision of what airplane you want to build. Utilizing the services of a flight advisor early on to help you choose the airplane that best fits your mission, it will also begin to build a relationship along the way to your flight test program.
There are about 500 flight advisors available to EAA members, and all of them have committed to serving you, the EAA member, to help you consider and develop the safest flight test program for you and the airplane that you built.
If you haven't done so, give a flight advisor a call to schedule a visit. It just might be the best choice you make on your project.
