  • Watch: Start by watching a short briefing video that puts you in the pilot’s seat, and details the scenario you’ll be evaluating.
  • Think: Each scenario briefing ends with several options. Here you will review weather forecasts, aircraft data, airport information, sectional charts and more to help you choose.
  • Choose: Choose your favorite option, then compare your choice with other pilots on our live poll.
  • Learn: After making your selection, watch the instructor’s video and learn which option they chose. They provide step-by-step instruction and offer a detailed explanation of their thought process. These segments are full of tips and techniques!
  • Listen: Our instructor roundtable discussion is where they discuss and debate each scenario. They don’t always agree…and that’s the fun part. It’s where a lot of learning happens.
  • Discuss: After going through the scenario, visit the members-only discussion forum where great tips, techniques and stories are shared. Valuable hangar flying with our instructors and other pilots.

Far more than reading another article or watching another YouTube video, VFR Mastery delivers a powerful way to keep your head in the game and gain valuable experience from the comfort of your computer.
