A ground briefing is given to each student prior to flight on the flight sequence that is to be flown that day, this gives the student a good understanding of what is to be achieved on the day and this also helps reduce the cost of your pilot certificate by reducing time spent repeating sequences in the air.
The courses are competency based and are structured to suit each individual student’s needs, you will be required to do some reading of aviation books for homework and we can advise which books would be suitable.
Following your flight we will brief you on your achievements and make recommendations if required, the aim is build upon your skills progressively leading to your solo flight when your instructor deems you capable for solo and then on to a full pilot certificate.
