A course in the essential basics of IFR cockpit proceduresInstrument flying is demanding. It can be very difficult or very easy – very safe or not so safe. It all depends on the pilot and how well trained the pilot is in managing skills and procedures in the cockpit.
IFR Flight Training School™ (IFR) has developed a special course designed to equip an instrument pilot with the cockpit procedures that will help ensure that each instrument flight is performed with ease, accuracy and comfort (for you and your passengers…).
Since the 1970’s, Mark Wilson, IFR’s founder, has used a unique and distinct process for training instrument pilots. It involves the use of a “special” syllabus specifically written to produce an exceptional instrument pilot. The first stage of the syllabus covers the development of Basic Instrument Flying Skills. There are 18 lessons in stage one. It is rare that pilots are trained on more than a few lessons covering Basic Instruments much less 18.
If you take this course on “The Basics”, you will learn how good an instrument pilot you can really be. You train with these procedures in our (or yours) ELITE PC Based Flight Simulator. Each simulator flight is preceded by an extensive briefing where you will learn why and how the procedures you are about to fly work so well. Following the simulator lessons, you will get to apply your skills in an aircraft (yours or ours).
“The Basics Course” includes 10 specially selected lessons from our 70 lesson instrument flying syllabus. 30 hours of training with our instructors is normally anticipated for a typically average instrument pilot. Even if you are already sharp, this course can make you sharper. The amount of time will vary depending on how current you are. The depth and thoroughness of your initial instrument training will make a difference too. If your initial training wasn’t all you would have liked for it to have been, now is when you can make those improvements.
*COURSE Components: Basic instrument fundamental skills using the Control and Performance method augmented by the Primary and Supporting method of cross checking and interpreting instruments and controlling the aircraft; professional use of checklist procedures; cockpit announcement procedures; deviation and error recognition and recovery procedures; handling cockpit distractions and emergencies.
