A good instrument scan is a cornerstone skill for IFR pilots, yet few are taught how to do it properly. As a result, many pilots work way too hard at attitude instrument flying and never develop confidence in their technique. This leads to chasing the needle, altitude deviations, course deviations, s-turns, fatigue, frustration, or worst of all – a loss of control in IMC.
VFR pilots also need to develop good instrument scan technique for private pilot certification, flying at night or in low visibility conditions where the horizon is not apparent. VFR into IMC is a leading killer of pilots who don’t possess solid instrument scan skills.
It doesn’t matter if you are a student pilot or ATP – Rod’s instrument scan techniques will help you fly smoother, safer and just plain better! His simple, step-by-step technique is easy to learn and recall when you need it most.
Here’s some of what you’ll learn in this course:
- A unique, simple to use, three-step instrument scan technique.
- A no-nonsense way to learn which instruments are always primary.
- Scanning techniques for both analog instruments and primary flight displays.
- Flying partial panel and not really missing those missing instruments.
- Unusual attitude recoveries made simple.
- Tips and techniques to make airplane control on instruments a breeze.
- Localizer, VOR and glideslope bracketing techniques.
Rod’s Interactive eLearning courses offer a fun, new and exciting way to learn. Each course is narrated and accompanied by interesting graphics, animations, videos and educational interactions. In addition, each section within a course is accompanied by questions to help test your knowledge and reinforce important concepts. Of course, if questions aren’t your thing, then simply skip them and continue with the course.
