New Procedure for Accessing BPPP and the ABS Flight Instructor Academy on iPad
When Apple released iOS8 for iPad it was incompatible with many existing apps, including that used for BPPP and the ABS Flight Instructor Academy on iPad. To address the issue long-term, instead of creating a new app Opango has modified the BPPP and AFIA courses to operate using the iPad’s Safari browser.
> Access BPPP and the ABS Flight Instructor Academy online at http://www.myopango.com/bppp.online
> Use the same log-in procedures whether you are using a PC, a Mac or an iPad or Android device.
> The BPPP App from the Apple Store no longer works. Use your browser to access BPPP and the ABS Flight Instructor Academy.
BPPP Online FREE to ABS members
Thanks to generous private donations and corporate sponsorships, beginning
January 5, 2015
all BPPP and ABS Flight Instructor Academy online classes will be FREE to current members of the American Bonanza Society. You'll register the same way as before through the link under PILOT TRAINING/BPPP or FLIGHT INSTRUCTOR TRAINING at www.bonanza.org. Take one segment or the entire course—it’s up to you, and it’s included in your ABS membership.
Complete the entire Beechcraft Systems, Techniques and Procedures course (“BPPP Initial”) or, if you’ve already taken the Initial course, the Beechcraft Pilot Skills Enhancement series (“BPPP Recurrent”), and you may add approximately four hours of flight instruction with an expert BPPP CFI near your home for only $395. That’s $100 less than before, with $375 going directly to your BPPP instructor. You’ll be a far safer and more capable pilot…and you may be eligible for insurance discounts after you earn a BPPP flight completion certificate. Ask your aircraft insurance agent or broker. Find the list of BPPP instructors under PILOT TRAINING/BPPP at www.bonanza.org.
BPPP Online was created specifically to get the safety benefits of ABS’ Beechcraft Pilot Proficiency Program to as many Beech pilots as possible, by removing the barriers of cost and schedule that prevent many pilots from participating. Beginning in January you can now get the online presentations free, and expert BPPP flight instruction where you want, when you want it for the lowest possible cost. This is a tremendous benefit you get as part of your ABS membership, thanks to generous member donations and sponsorships.
