Redbird announces lineup for virtual MigrationRedbird announces lineup for virtual Migration

AOPA Flight Training Experience Project videos will be presentedAOPA Flight Training Experience Project videos will be presented

The tenth annual Redbird Migration Flight Training Conference is going online October 21 and 22 because of coronavirus pandemic travel restrictions and safety concerns.

NTSB Vice Chairman Bruce Landsberg and Hartzell Propeller Chairman Joe Brown were announced as speakers, along with health care flight program professionals Christopher Manacci and Celeste Alfes.

The AOPA Flight Training Experience Survey and accompanying in-person awards, which are typically presented during Redbird Migration, are taking a pause. AOPA is instead seeking stories that inspire, demonstrate resilience in the face of challenges, and show how the flight training community contributes to aviation and communities at large, via video vignettes that will be presented online during the virtual Migration.

The deadline to submit a video is July 31. It doesn’t have to be cinema quality because the experience is the key.

Redbird Flight Simulations CEO Todd Willinger said that taking Migration “directly into the homes and offices of flight training professionals” while still allowing them time to focus on their businesses “is the best way to gather our whole community responsibly and effectively.”
