Pilots can still register for Jeppesen and AOPA’s Captain Jepp Challenge for a chance to sharpen their aviation knowledge and enter to win a free trip to EAA Airventure 2017.

By attending free in-person or online educational courses, forums and seminars, participants earn points for prize drawings, including $250 MyGoFlight gift cards and the grand prize of a trip to Oshkosh, Wisconsin, for AirVenture 2017, with airfare and a two-night stay included.

The challenge, which kicked off at EAA AirVenture 2016, runs through September 30. To register, pilots should visit the Captain Jepp Challenge page, where there are 10 ways to enter — each earning one point toward the prize drawings.

The challenge, which rewards pilots for fine-tuning their skills, honors the legacy of Jeppesen founder Capt. Elrey B. Jeppesen, whose pilot certificate was signed by Orville Wright in 1929. Working as an airmail pilot, Jeppesen sought to improve safety by drawing the now ubiquitous charts.

“The Captain Jepp Challenge combines the legacy of Captain Elrey B. Jeppesen, providing flight-critical navigation information with the philosophy of continuously elevating aviator skills,” said Jeppesen director of general aviation client management Reggie Arsenault. “We are creating an environment that encourages commitment to enhancing flight safety and rewards pilots for sharpening their knowledge.”
