webinar_imacFree presentations open to all and hosted by aviation experts

What started as a venue to converse with the aviation community on training topics and product information has evolved into an invaluable, year-round resource. Sporty’s free aviation webinar series consists of live, multimedia presentations on a wide variety of interesting topics delivered in a format that is engaging and allows participants to provide feedback and interact with presenters.

“And you don’t have to leave the comfort of your living room or office,” says Sporty’s Vice President John Zimmerman. “Our webinars can be viewed anywhere you have an internet connection and on your mobile device.”

Complete descriptions of the webinars are available at Sportys.com/webinars. Live presentations are scheduled nearly every month and begin on Thursdays at 8pm Eastern time. If you can’t make a live presentation or wish to review the information at a later date, all of Sporty’s webinars are recorded and available in the webinar archive for viewing.
