The National Instrument Proficiency Academy to launch its new Concept in Flight Training
The National Instrument Proficiency Academy (NIPA) plans to launch its new concept in flight training. NIPA is a flight school run by flight instructors and focused on pilot proficiency training.
Cessna plans to have their Skycatcher on display from the hours of 10AM to 4PM that day. The new 162 Skycatcher brings the latest technology to the light sport or “starter plane” market.
NIPA is currently offering workshops at Norwood Airport. These workshops are designed to educate pilots after their initial training. Topics include advanced training in weather, communications and flying instrument approaches. Those workshops will also be available for purchase on the web.
As a flight school focused on safety, NIPA’s goal is to increase pilot confidence and proficiency. It was established as a resource for instrument rated pilots and students pursuing their Instrument Rating as well as pilots who would simply like to fly better and safer in VFR conditions.
Too often pilots complete their training and then become distracted and disengaged from the flying community. The result is a dangerous lack of proficiency and the loss of support from the flying community as a whole. NIPA is mitigating this issue by providing a means of reconnecting pilots and instructors and supplying them with recurrent training. NIPA is committed to coaching, training and mentoring pilots to help them fly safely in actual instrument meteorological conditions.

The IMC Club is a membership based Non- Profit 501(c)(3) organization focused on instrument rated pilots and flight instructors, with a network of chapters throughout the nation. Their intent is to create a community of pilots in order to share information, provide recognition, foster communications, promote safety and build proficiency in instrument flying.
