Transitioning To Multi Engine Aircraft

Thanks to you all in the MzeroA Nation we’ve been so blessed! Last month we were able to purchase a “new to us” aircraft allowing us to now bring you some amazing multiengine training. Here’s a sneak peak of whats to come. We’re in the process of filming our brand new CFI online ground school and multiengine online ground school so stay tuned for that! In the meantime did you know we already have an amazing Private, Instrument, and Commercial Pilot online ground school? Already up to ACS guidelines might I add. Click below to learn... read more

Flying to a New Airport

Have any of these questions crossed your mind while flying to a new airport? Is that the airport or is THAT the airport? Which end is runway 36 again? (At a pilot controlled airport) Why is that guy taking off with a tailwind? (At a towered airport) Okay report a 3 mile left base for 36…. Now if I could only spot 36. I think we’ve all had one of these thoughts at one point or another. In todays video I go over some of the things I do when flying to a new to me airport. If you wouldn’t mind sharing some of your tips in the comment box below as well! Enjoy –... read more

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

High Altitude Training

If you’ve ever met me in person you know I’m always happy and joking yet did you know euphoria is my first hypoxia symptom? As the MzeroA team put it after seeing me in the hypobaric chamber “It was like Jason at a level 10” hahah I think that’s a compliment? We had the pleasure of being able to revisit SAMI The Southern AeroMedical Institute and test out their new glass panel trainer in the chamber. This video is a bit longer than our normal clips but I promise it will be worth it. Want to visit SAMI and learn your own Hypoxia symptoms? CLICK HERE to check out their... read more

Forward Slip to Landing

Our goal everyday is to deliver valuable content that creates safer pilots I hope this video is a reflection of that for you. Do you know the difference between a forward slip and a side slip? The terms get used interchangeably yet each respective maneuver has a different goal and outcome. In this video I’m flying with my lovely wife Ashley into our friends private airport demonstrating both a Forward Slip to Landing followed by a Side Slip. Enjoy it –... read more

Slow Flight Made Easy

“We practice slow flight to better at landings” a wise flight instructor once shared with me. It’s a phrase thats really stuck with me and I now share it with my students including yourself. You see no one ever explained to me why we do slow flight. All I knew was I hated getting the airplane this close to a stall and now you want me to turn? Yet when someone said if you get good at slow flight your landings will greatly improve it all clicked for me. Everything we do at MzeroA is focused on creating safer smarter pilots and that oftentimes includes a little out of the box thinking for an otherwise basic maneuver. I hope this video is a blessing to you as you all are to us! –... read more

How to Recover From a Bounced Landing

I’ve long said “a perfect landing starts with a perfect traffic pattern” but what happens when you try to “force” a landing in? Usually it leads to a bounce. Sometimes this bounce can be more of a skip or a hop and sometimes it can send you 25 feet back into the air. In this video I show you how I teach students to recover from a bounced landing. Why Do I Bounce On Landing? – 3 Point Landing – Too Fast – Improper Wind Correction (Crosswind or Headwind Gust) What are some other reasons one might bounce on... read more

Steep Turns According To The Private Pilot ACS

Despite the few critics I’m a big fan of the new ACS (Airmen Certification Standards) It doesn’t hurt that they finally included something that I’ve been teaching for years (Trim in a turn). It’s really one of my best tips. Have you ever used trim in a turn? What about a steep turn? You know trim is simply a “poor-mans autopilot” and yet it’s something so few pilots really use to it’s fullest potential. Enjoy the video – Jason Our Private, Instrument, and Commercial Pilot Online Ground School is Already up to and Exceeds Airmen Certification Standards.
