Where Are You in Your Training?

Glass Vs Steam

I’m a big fan of technology in the cockpit however I also believe there is a balance between true stick and rudder flying and technology. What do you think? —> I’m doing a huge 2 day live training event titled “Aviation Mastery” in Orlando Florida Feb 9th-10th you can preorder your tickets at... read more

Slow Flight

I believe if you truly want to improve your landings you need to first master slow flight. In these two quick videos this week I’ll show you slow flight in both the clean and dirty (landing) configuration. Regarding slow flight the ACS says we’re to Establish and maintain an airspeed at which any further increase in angle of attack, increase in load factor, or reduction in power, would result in a stall warning (e.g., airplane buffet, stall horn, etc.). It goes on to say we need to Accomplish coordinated straight-and-level flight, turns, climbs, and descents with the airplane configured as specified by the evaluator without a stall warning (e.g., airplane buffet, stall horn, etc.). So what does this “new” slow flight look like and should we now teach “old school” (PTS) and “new school” (ACS) slow flight? We’ll talk about that in this video.

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
