Aviation 101 with Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University
This online, video-based course is provided to cadets at no cost by Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. If you want to learn aviation fundamentals and how to become a licensed pilot, start here.
Games, worksheets, puzzles

Many units are using Zoom as a platform for virtual meetings but have read news reports about safety concerns.
Pro-Tip from CAP/IT:  "There are settings within Zoom that will prevent someone from bombing your meeting.  If you know of members who are using Zoom, they need to go to settings and disable file transfer and screen sharing. That is especially important if they are conducting large meetings with people who may be unknown to them. From what I’ve seen, these things are happening when meeting links are posted in social media that is open to the public. Bad guys then use the link to get into the meeting and do bad guy stuff."  

Adult Professional Development

The TLC Course is now available via distance learning. Contact your Wing DCP for information about the next session.
