How well do you follow your Check List?

     From the time I first stepped in an airplane to train as a pilot in 2001 it has been imbedded in my head Check List, Check List, Check list! I remember my instructor telling me “I don’t want to see you doing your preflight without that check list in your hand”. I developed a very good habit way back then to keep it with me. It seems however that lately I have been reminded a lot about the importance […]

“The Skipper” and a man’s dream to fly.

My adventures started just over a year ago when a friend of mine was losing a partner in

“rental” rate to learn in with the intent that I would buy in after I received my ticket.

Minimum Descent Altitude and How to Get There

In the Pilotworkshops.com IFR Proficiency series, titled “Descending on a non precision approach” respected flight instructor Rod Machado explains the benefit of descending to MDA early on non precision approaches. Rod makes the point that getting to the minimum descent altitude (MDA) prior to the visual descent point (VDP) allows the pilot a greater opportunity to see the required visual references during low visibility and therefore a better chance of landing. Rod advocates a dive and drive technique rather than […]

Practical Test Standards

By Bob Martens with Pilot workshops

As we continually build upon the foundation that supports our aviation activities, I fear that many of us are neglecting a very important cornerstone.

The Practical Test Standards (PTS) are the basis for all training and evaluation in the US, yet few know where they are, what they say, or most importantly, how they can save lives.

The great news is that they are readily available FOR FREE, on line, they are very easy to read and […]
