Virtual Conference

Alternatively, we will be holding a series of free, live, online webinars through FAASafety.gov to provide at least 8 hours of credit towards IA renewal. There are additional options for renewal on FAASafety.gov and other websites, some of which have a cost associated. This online training is being provided by the MSP and MKE FSDO offices in partnership with the MNDOT Aeronautics and the WisDOT Bureau of Aeronautics.

There will also be times to network with all your favorite aviation exhibitors. There will also be chances to win door prizes – just like at our in-person conferences.

We hope that you join us online early next year to hear live presentations from Greg Reigel, Mark Moen, Joe Schmidt, Dennis Wyman, FAA and more. More information about the webinars, including the schedule of events, will be provided on this webpage and on the FAA’s website when it is available.
