Hello everyone! I know it’s been a long time since I posted but I finally remembered my password after two years! So today I will address using flight sims (like Microsoft or any one you can install on a home pc) for usage as an aid to learning how to land an aircraft in the pursuit of a ppl. I once thought that these types of sims had no bearing on regular landings but after one of my last students (who had difficulty landing) used one to his benefit, I may have to re visit the concept. Using sims removes you from the danger elements involved in landing and can actually teach you some of the finer points in a safer more relaxed (cheaper too!) environment. I will experiment with this over the next few months and report my findings here as soon as they become available! Will be talking soon!
Hello everyone, this post is to address all the flight schools who allow their instructors to utilize in-flight training over the proper method of training where you actually talk about what you are going to do on the ground prior to engaging in flight. The reason that it sometimes takes up to 80 hours or more is because the instructor says lets go and expects the student to turn the engine on without the student having the slightest clue as to whats going to occur on that particular lesson. Instructors need to talk about certain subjects before a flight such as how to talk on the radio, whats going to occur for that flight, what the expectations for that flight happen to be and so on… You simply cannot just jump into the plane after a pre-flight and expect to fire her up and just go with it. You just dont learn that way… It is a pretty big waste of time and it will make your flight way more expensive in the long run. Additionally, the student might become frustrated and give up before they get their license because they do not see the light at the end of the tunnel. I can totally understand this.
I think that the main reason that most instructors do not do proper pre flight briefings is because they try to sandwich as many 2 hour appointments as they can in a day trying to make as much money as possible and trying to make as many students as happy as possible. The instructor is also hesitant to charge the student for pre and post flight briefings because they feel like its not the norm. Let me tell you, those pre and post flight briefings are as important as the actual flight itself!! The instructor and chief pilot of the school needs to explain to the student before they start their training that there is no way around these briefings and that the student will be properly billed for this time. Otherwise the training can get real expensive fast!
We do not have this problem at all with accelerated flight training. These briefings last about as long as the flight with our methodology. This is why we have a student average flight time of only 43 hours and is also the reason that we make better pilots than anybody! Not to brag though…
So I have spent the week talking to many potential students of ours and some of them have been telling me stories about how things work back at the flight school that they just left. The stories that I hear are just plain wrong as far as I am concerned! These stories involve keeping the student on the line as long as their credit card keeps working every time they take a flight. Im just going to come out and say it, regular snail paced flight training doesnt work (for 90% of students that is)! The reason that I started flyaccelerated was to overcome the fact that up to 90% of all students do not complete their training and those who do end up with over 65 flight hours on average. What a rip off! If any flight schools want a way to figure out how to stop ripping people off, please give me a call and I will give you all of my secrets of success but please what ever you do, stop ripping people off!! I jsyt dont know if I can take any more of these stories!! And no, the Jeppesen or ASA syllabus is not a proper substitution for having to use your brain and actually think for yourselves FLIGHT SCHOOLS! Thats it, Im done ranting for the night. See you up there!
Hello All, just a little bloggin about what the minimums for the instrument rating. To be eligible to get your instrument rating, you must first have your private pilots license and have-
50 Hours of cross country flight time as pilot in command
40 Hours of simulated instrument flight time (20 of which can be in an approved simulator)
15 hours of instrument training from an authorized instructor
3 hours of flight training in the preceding 60 days before the test
1 Cross Country under IFR of at least 250 nm with an instrument approach at 3 different airports
So there it is, hope it helped, see you up there!
Hello Everybody, just a short blog post on the requirements to get the sport pilot certificate. First off, many pilots will elect to get their sport pilot certificate due to the fact that they KNOW that there will be deficiencies in getting their medical certificate. If you think there might be an issue in getting your medical, its up to you to do your research and make that decision to get the sport pilot cert instead of actually going in to the medical examiners office and getting rejected which WILL disqualify you from the private pilot and sport pilot cert. Thats right, take the initiative to get your medical and you could end up grounded with no private pilots license and no sport pilot cert.
To earn your Sport Pilot certificate, you must have at least 20 hours of total flight time, which must include:
15 Hours of dual flight time with an instructor, which includes:
2 Hours of dual cross country
10 takeoffs and landings
3 hours in the preceding 60 days before the checkride
5 hours of solo flight time, including:Areas listed in Part 61.311
1 solo cross country of at least 75nm
10 takeoffs and landings
So there it is, see you up there!
Hello Everyone, here is a short blog post about the private pilot requirements… So to start, you need to read write and understand the english language. You must be 16 years of age to solo and 17 years old to get your license. You will need to have completed the following aeronautical experience requirements (flight times)
40 hours total time
20 hours of flight instruction
3 hours of night flight time with at least ten take offs and landings to a full stop and one cross country of at least 100 nm total distance
3 hours of flight time by reference to instruments (hood time)
10 hours of solo time of which
at least 5 hours must be cross country time (at least 50 nm from your original point of departure) of which you must have 1 long cross country to three different airports at least 50 nm apart and a total distance of 150 nm (nautical mile) (a nuatical mile is 1.15 of a statute mile)
at least 3 hours of training within the previous 90 days in preparation for the practical test
You will need to pass the FAA knowledge exam (written test) as well as take a pre solo written exam which is correctable to 100% with your flight instructor.
This is everything needed to get your private pilots license but is the bare minimums. Each individual student may need more then what is prescribed here. See you up there!
