The objective of the WINGS Program is to address the primary accident causal factors that continue to plague the general aviation community.

Seminars, Activities and Courses

The FAA provides many opportunities to complete online courses, attend seminars and other events, and participate in webinars. Many 3rd party activities, such as those offered by AOPA, ASA, and even us at Independent Helicopters, qualify for WINGS credit!

Flight Training

Get WINGS credit when you fly with your instructor too! The program encourages an on-going training program that provides you an opportunity to fly on a regular basis with an authorized flight instructor giving you the opportunity to fly in different seasons and in different flight conditions.
