The 2013 FIRC was a success, with over 50 renewing flight instructors and over 60 individuals in attendance, including several flight instructor candidates from St. Louis University Parks College. This was the first time we’ve presented our new Training Course Outline based on the latest Advisory Circular from the FAA stressing discussion and scenarios, and the first time we’ve tried out some new seating configurations and audio/visual set-up. Overall it was well-recieved and everyone embraced the interactive element, lending their expertise and experience to the weekend. I think everyone had a great time and learned a lot from each other.
Thank you to everyone for your participation and assistance, especially to the presenters and FAA employees who gave up a weekend to make sure everything went smoothly.
