Power Off 180’s

The power off 180 (Power off accuracy approach and landing) as the FAA calls it is a commercial pilot maneuver that works to teach pilots gliding accuracy and the power off characteristics of their aircraft. However it’s not just a maneuver for those pursuing a commercial pilot certificate . I encourage pilots of all skills levels to practice power off 180’s with their flight... read more

Short Field Takeoff and Landings

I remember my first attempt at a short field takeoff and landing. The takeoff was the somewhat easy part after all it was just simulated and there was no real obstacle so the pressure was off. On the landing things were interesting. I though to myself “how hard could it be to land on a certain spot?” More specifically 0 feet before and 200 feet after (Private Pilot Standards). This however proved to be quite the challenge. Fast forward over a decade and thousands of hours I’m now sharing with you some of my best short field takeoff and landing... read more

In todays video I show you that while stalls are something to “fear” in the sense that we need to stay well away. Practicing stalls can make us a much better stick and rudder pilots. Always remember, we practice stalls to practice... read more

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
