Accelerated Stalls

Accelerated stalls are on the commercial pilot ACS. However I believe it’s an important maneuver for pilots of all skills levels to practice or at least observe it being demonstrated. The reason is primarily that we want students to understand an airplane can stall at any airspeed but always the same critical angle of attack. In this weeks video I’ll take you along for two accelerated stalls.

3 Tips For Better Short Field Landings

I believe we often confuse the term “short field landing” with “spot landing.” With a spot landing we are attempting to do nothing more than hit a particular point on the runway. A short field landing by definition we are trying to land using all available runway (hitting a spot) and clear a obstacle. Which could be our reason for the shortened field. In this video we go over 3 of our best short field landing tips: 1. Manage Your Airspeed (airspeed is king) 2. Aim Ahead of Your Point 3.

In this video I show you how to slowly work your way into power on stalls and I teach you the most important thing to remember when practicing stalls. We practice stalls to practice recoveries.

Turns Around a Point

I believe we don’t practice ground reference maneuvers enough. Maneuvers like turns around a point teach us so much about wind correction and control. Fly along as I show you turns around a... read more

Go Around

It’s the maneuver no one like to practice, the go-around. Yet last year there were 42 accidents that occurred during “attempted” go-arounds. Watching this video I want you to remember one thing. Fly the airplane first! If you remember to tell tower you’re going around, great. If you remember to maneuver slightly to the right of the runway, fine. However we have to remember to get and keep that airplane flying... read more

Unusual Attitudes

When is the last time you practiced unusual attitudes? How did you practice with your CFI? Spatial disorientation is no laughing matter. The FAA released a study that says based on NTSB data a private pilot on average only lasted 178 seconds in IMC conditions. Fly along with myself and our director of maintenance Russ Loving as I show you the 2 ways we practice upset recovery and induce spatial... read more

Secondary Stalls

What would happen if I didn’t execute a proper stall recovery? The airplane breaks the stall but we continue to apply back pressure and we now enter into a secondary stall. I’ll show you what that looks like in todays... read more

Turning Stalls
