EAA Virtual Flight AcademyNew Member Benefit: EAA Virtual Flight Academy

Whether it’s your first flight or your 500th, EAA understands what it takes to maximize your safe enjoyment in the cockpit and build proficiency at home. Developed by TakeFlight Interactive, EAA’s Virtual Flight Academy combines innovations in artificial intelligence, simulation-based learning, and data analytics to create a new capability – a virtual flight instructor. This virtual instructor guides users through maneuvers in the simulator, just like a flight instructor would in a real airplane. EAA members receive:
  • Stage one: Fundamentals of Flight (six virtual flight lessons) free from EAA Virtual Flight Academy (a $29.95 value), with the option to purchase additional stages at 10 percent off from TakeFlight Interactive.
  • Up to 15 percent off flight simulator controllers from Thrustmaster – one of the leading manufacturers of precision gaming controllers and accessories for a wide variety of platforms.
