Dec 4, 2018 (Nashua, NH) – PilotWorkshops has released “Flying Companion”, the latest in their Pilot-Friendly Manual series. This manual provides simple, clear instructions for 50 useful tasks a
non-pilot can complete before, during and after a flight. It’s written in a “hands-on” and practical style to help a flying companion (typically a spouse or friend who flys regularly) feel more
comfortable in the right seat, and let the pilot offload simple (but useful) tasks a companion is perfectly capable of handling.
“When you step back and analyze all the things you need to do during the course of a routine flight, you’d be surprised by how many items can be offloaded to a passenger if they are properly trained to help you,” stated Mark Robidoux, PilotWorkshops founder. “We were careful in selecting and explaining tasks that could easily be accomplished by a non-pilot without jeopardizing safety.”
The full-color manual is loaded with illustrations and diagrams that explain how to safely and effectively accomplish these tasks. Not only does this help the pilot, but it also helps the passenger better understand the different phases of flight so their experience is more enjoyable.
