If there’s one thing we’ve learned about aviation education, it’s that learning never stops – whether you are a student pilot or an ATP. Sporty’s Air Facts® DVD Video Series addresses this fact with host Richard L. Collins, a renowned aviation journalist with thousands of hours of experience in a variety of general aviation aircraft. In each program, Collins presents the knowledge and ingenuity acquired through years of real-world flying and teaches you how to apply the same veteran skills and hard-learned techniques. 35 informative programs on 9 DVDs teach you to manage the risks of flight and increase the safety factor in whatever type flying you do. So keep learning! You’ll end up a better, smoother, SAFER pilot regardless of the certificates you hold.

Air Facts: IFR Risk Management

Includes 4 Air Facts Titles
Piloting a light aircraft in the IFR system contains inherent, albeit manageable, risks. In order to achieve consistently safe and efficient flight, these risks must be assessed correctly and handled properly each and every time. In the latest three programs in the Air Facts Series, Flying Editor Richard L. Collins addresses some of these risks by examining techniques and equipment pilots can use to make IFR flight safer, less stressful and more enjoyable. As usual, these programs are packed with real world tips and in flight footage.

IFR Weather Briefing

This program explores several weather briefing options that allow you to both prepare and develop a strategy to safely complete an IFR flight. Get the most out of your preflight weather briefing. (25 min.)

IFR Crew of One

Crew Resource Management (CRM) isn’t just for two pilot airplanes. Here Collins addresses the various phases of IFR flight and how they can best be handled when acting as sole pilot of an aircraft. Includes tips on how and when to use your autopilot. (25 min.)

Datalink Weather

The ability to view Nexrad radar imagery and text weather reports on multi-function displays (MFDs) is one of the most exciting innovations to come to your instrument panel in decades. This program explains the differences between uplink and downlink technologies, and how to use datalink weather for strategic weather avoidance. (20 min.)

Understanding ATC – An Instrument Pilot’s Perspective

Take an inside look at Air Traffic Control and learn how to take full advantage of the services provided by ATC to make IFR flights smoother and safer. Go behind the scenes of Indianapolis Center and Syracuse TRACON to meet the personnel and discover the equipment that make up the most modern and efficient ATC system in the world. This program combines Collins years of flying experience with the knowledge and insight of veteran Washington Center controller, Embry-Riddle graduate and CFI-I Drew Kassal. Together they provide a unique perspective on real-world operations in US airspace. Learn what controllers expect from pilots operating in the IFR system and what you should expect from all phases of flight. (25 min.)
