Where Are You in Your Training?

Engine Failure Of Takeoff

Every video we put out has one goal: To make safer/smarter pilots. I hope todays video is a reflection of that for you. Have you ever practiced this? You’re rolling down the runway (preferably a long runway) you rotate, climb out normally, then at 100-200ft AGL the instructor brings the throttle back to idle simulating an engine failure on takeoff with usable runway remaining. What about the other situation without usable runway remaining? We cover both of these situations in todays video. Enjoy it –... read more

The Ultimate VFR Flight Following Video

We’ve spent time talking about VFR flight following before but never like this. A few weeks ago I was invited to the space center which involved a commute everyday across the state with cameras rolling. Each time we picked up flight following something different happened. Sometimes it was the standard response, the next time no response… or shall we call it more of a delayed response. That’s the thing about flight following we can make the same radio calls, on the same frequencies, on different days and get different responses. This clip really shows the diversity of VFR flight following responses. Enjoy –... read more

Popup IFR Clearance

What happens when you’re an instrument rated pilot stuck on top with no IFR flight plan on file? You request a “popup.” This is exactly what happened to Ashley and I while we were filming other videos just to watch the morning fog start to move in underneath of us. Days like this remind you why you always over prepare and keep charts up to date even though you never plan to fly an approach. It’s another long clip but I promise it’s a good one. Enjoy it!... read more

One place I spent a lot of time was with Jason Schappert and MzeroA. Primarily because the videography that brings you into the cockpit and shows you what you’re doing in terms of controlling the airplane, is all part of the preparation and studying that’s incredibly valuable before you even get into the cockpit of the airplane.

Executive Director AOPA Foundation

I have enjoyed your online ground school. It was just what I was looking for. This course has allowed me to learn new things, keep up the knowledge part of flying and to interact with you and other pilots through the weekly workshops, monthly check rides and webinars.

I have also enjoyed and benefited from the frequent e-mails you have sent. It has also made me realize confidence in my knowledge skills and allowed me to move on to the IFR ground work I have been eager to get to. Dean Hoopengardner
