We want people to come away with a renewed sense of the importance of vigilant tire maintenance.” is the primary training website for pilots and aircraft maintenance technicians and offers FAA incentive credits to those taking the training courses, which cover a wide range of topics.  Many of the training courses address key safety issues in the industry with the intent to educate and prevent further incidents.
