EAA SkillScore 2.0 Pilot Proficiency Tracker Enhances Flying Skills
The newly enhanced 2.0 version of the SkillScore Tracker from the Experimental Aircraft Association has expanded technology that makes more detailed information available so pilots can gauge their flying proficiency and take steps to enhance their skills.
The EAA SkillScore Tracker was introduced at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2019 as the first resource that allows pilots to measure flying proficiency on an EAA web portal or their mobile devices. Using data generated by the CloudAhoy mobile app, pilots can track flying consistency and stability. Using this data, the EAA SkillScore Tracker will generate a comprehensive, personalized and confidential SkillScore, confirming a pilot’s overall strengths or need for additional work. This resource is available to all EAA members.
“The success of the SkillScore Tracker over its first year allowed EAA and CloudAhoy to further develop and evolve the technology to provide even more valuable information for pilots,” said Radek Wyrzykowski, EAA’s manager of flight proficiency. “The goal with this enhanced information is building proficiency and safety for all aviators by suggesting areas of improvement.”
Instead of a single overall score that measures pilot proficiency, SkillScore 2.0 has individual results for specific skill and areas of activity that include: Quality of flight, number of takeoffs and landings within the last 90 days, number of flights with a flight instructor, and time spent in the air.
More information about the EAA SkillScore Tracker is available at EAA.org/Proficiency. SkillScore is part of EAA Proficiency365TM, where pilots can develop and refine skills that make them a better, safer pilot.
