Englewood, Colo. | 01 Jun 2017 | By Jeppesen

Jeppesen, a Boeing Company, will be promoting pilot safety by sponsoring Pilot Proficiency Center programs at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2017. Jeppesen will help EAA emphasize the importance of pilot proficiency, efficiency and safety through Tech Talks presentations, which will be held in the Pilot Proficiency Center located at EAA Four Corners, just west of Boeing Plaza.

“We are proud to support EAA in their mission to enhance pilot safety and increase awareness of current best practices through the Pilot Proficiency Center,” said Reggie Arsenault, director, Jeppesen General Aviation Client Management. “These programs are essential to achieve our shared goal of providing pilots with all of the essential information they need to safely take to the skies.”

Jeppesen is also helping sponsor several EAA AirVenture web pages including: Understanding Oshkosh Air Traffic Control, Ground Operations, International and Commercial arrivals, Weather and Fuel Services. Additionally, 2017 marks the 25th anniversary of the Young Eagles program, which was developed in 1992 and has provided more than 2 million young people ages 8-17 an introduction to the world of personal aviation. To honor the Young Eagles 25th anniversary, Jeppesen is designing and producing a commemorative chart, as well as hosting the Gathering of Eagles Grand Reception.

“EAA AirVenture has always been a place of learning and discovery,” said Dave Chaimson, vice president of Marketing and Business Development. “With hundreds of forums taking place throughout the week, we are happy to do our part to support the sharing of flight safety and awareness to pilots coming to Oshkosh.”

Jeppesen also supports year round EAA initiatives, including the sponsorship of the new Chapter Video Magazine and eNewsletter that celebrate the “Spirit of EAA” and incorporate segments of project patrols, volunteer spotlights and news from EAA headquarters. Jeppesen is also sponsoring IMC and VMC club programs which help promote pilot proficiency in instrument and non-instrument rated flying.
