Join the webinar "Return to Flying After a Pause"

Come and join us for the webinar “Return to Flying after a Pause” organised by the FAI Medico-Physiological Commission (CIMP)!

This webinar is designed for pilots of any air sports and skydivers who are eager to resume their activities after a break. Its main objective is to raise awareness about the decline in skills that occurs when individuals take a pause.

Whether your pause in active flight was due to a short pause or vacation, a medical situation, or perhaps a prolonged period, such as pilots and skydivers experienced during the COVID-19 pandemic, or even a recurring lull in flying activities during winter months, this webinar will help you return safely and confidently into flying.

Date: Sunday, May 12, 2024
Time: 16:00 UTC
