Air Facts: Practical Airmanship

Includes 4 Air Facts Titles, 93 mins.

Preflight Tips

Flying is more challenging than most pilots’ preflight inspections would indicate. You’ll learn what to look for, why each item is important and the consequences of inattention to any. Along the way, you’ll also pick up valuable tips, such as how to plan for an inaccurate winds aloft forecast.

Departing

You’ll learn the many factors contributing to a successful departure and (how to manage each), why rotation speed in your airplane’s POH is best used as a general guideline and much more. Learn how to plan your departures like the pros.

Climb & Cruise

Starts at 1000′ AGL and continues through the en route phase of flight. See how instrument approaches can improve your departures and how to estimate in-flight visibility quickly, easily and accurately. Covering both VFR and IFR flying, the techniques covered in this title will help you manage the en route chores that keep you ahead of the airplane.

Descent & Landing

Examines both VFR and IFR arrival procedures and provides hints to help make this critical phase of flight go smoothly. Learn to fly defensively in the pattern and to manage both the aircraft and the flight environment – from dealing with changing winds to navigating the intricacies of ATC.

Outside the United States?- Sporty's DVDs have all DVD regions enabled and play on almost all DVD players (NTSC or PAL); consult your owner's manual for more information.

Great, timeless techniques to keep you and your airplane working together.
I've watched this video at least 5 or more times and always learn and remember more critical and practical information for beginning a flight, conducting in-flight operations and the landing sequence. Great for me as a student and it should be even more valuable to experienced aviators. Great job Mr. Collins.
