You will want to know that there is new terminology for reporting runway condition and braking action that you will hear from tower controllers and on the ATIS. There are six conditions they can report, called the Runway Condition Code (RwyCC). They will say nothing about the runway condition if it is clear and dry. The new terms are good, good to medium, medium, medium to poor, poor and nil. If the runway condition is reported as nil the runway will be closed until the condition improves. The codes can be reported for each third of a runway; approach, middle and end. For more details see http://tinyurl.com/SAFO16009

Pilots holding an FAA (or any other ICAO State) pilot certificate seeking to convert to an EASA Private Pilot License (PPL), can now study for the three required theoretical tests using web-based training developed by E-gle—a team of experts from the EuroPilot Center. The course “EASA PPL Conversion Course” is hosted on the King Schools iLearn platform. E-gle is a division of the EuroPilot center, and an EASA Approved Training Organization (ATO). The online course retails for $89.

Pilots with more than 100 flight hours must pass EASA written tests on Human Performance & Limitations, Air Law and Radio Telephony. The test-prep course material is fully EASA compliant; containing all required learning objectives and over 200 EASA-style test questions with explanations.

“We are excited to address the needs of pilots wanting to fly in Europe with a course from E-gle that excels at preparing pilots for the required exams. And hosting it on the KING iLearn platform makes that learning easily accessible to pilots around the world.” John King, Co-Chairman of King Schools commented. “We look forward to continue working with E-gle to add a full range of EASA pilot test prep courses to our iLearn platform,” he added.

“EuroPilot Center has years of experience training pilots to JAA and EASA standards and has ensured the courses are in accordance with European theoretical knowledge requirements. The SoCal Pilot Center is our USA location,” Kay Vereeken, CEO of the EuroPilot Center commented. “We have the experience and technical expertise to address the needs of pilots seeking European certification,” concluded Kay.
