Hello! This post is about what I think is the best way to get your accelerated private pilots license or instrument rating. In my opinion, the best way for somebody who plans on using a plane for transportation purposes(wether pleasure or otherwise) is to go out and get as much cross country time as possible. Go to as many different airports as you possibly can, see as much adverse weather conditions as possible, see as much challenging conditions as possible that don’t usually exist at your home training base! You don’t become a good pilot by flying around the same hood with the same conditions every time, you become a good pilot by going out and challenging yourself to things you don’t normally encounter (within reason of course, don’t do anything unsafe!). My accelerated flight training courses are designed to get you out into the real world, away from your comfort zone and are designed to get you to think outside the box so that when you do encounter conditions out of the ordinary you will be able to make it home (or nearest airport) safely! We get out into the weather, land at high density altitude airports, land at airports that are usually shunned by other pilots so that you may have a much more intense flight training experience then you would get anywhere else. That’s all I got for today, see you soon!
Hello everyone, just a few words on how keeping healthy is crucial part of staying safe in the skies. It goes well beyond just making sure you don’t have a cold or taking some sort of medicine before a flight also. We all know (or should know) the imsafe checklist- illness, medication, stress, alcohol, fatigue and eating but in my humble opinion it goes much deeper than this. If you’re only judging what you did in the last few hours or days to judge wether or not your fit for flight, you probably have other issues that could possibly pop up that the imsafe checklist might miss. Things such as being over weight, smoking and other long term eating habits might cause many problems throughout your flight such as hypoxia at a much lower altitude then others, poor or slow decision making and a whole other slew of issues. It’s best just to eat healthy, avoid smoking and try to moderate all other vices if at all possible but I know it’s a lot easier said than done but if you can you’ll be a much better pilot for it in the long run!
