Beechcraft Instructor Crosstalk - Hampton Inn & Suites

The ABS-BIC is a weekend gathering of experienced CFIs who provide or plan to provide type-specific transition training in Beechcraft Bonanzas, Debonairs, Barons and Travel Airs, in or out of ABS’ Beechcraft Pilot Proficiency Program (BPPP). Our meeting objectives are to:

  1. Share best practices for type-specific flight instruction;
  2. Enhance the quality and scope of Beechcraft transition and recurrent training;
  3. Update instructors on regulations and procedures affecting flight instruction; and
  4. Develop a sense of community among all Beechcraft instructors as we pursue a common goal of creating more knowledgeable and proficient Beech pilots.

The program, including meals, is free to CFIs who are members of ABS. 

*Seminar schedule will be released soon!*

Attending the Beechcraft Instructor Crosstalk does not take the place of completing the ABS Flight Instructor Academy for new BPPP instructor accreditation. It does, however, take the place of re-taking the online Academy course to renew BPPP accreditation (when combined with flight instructor experienced in the past two years or completing a BPPP standardization flight).
