February 11 (Sat) 12:00pm Failing on Fundamentals: How to Stop Flying Like a Rookie and Master the Airplane

Event Date: 
Saturday, February 11, 2017 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm

Did you really understand what your instructor was saying about rudder coordination?  Do you use trim like a rookie?  When you fly with friends are they seeing the same level of pilot skills you think you are showing them?  Need some tips?

Pilot fundamentals include the most basic ability to maneuver and operate the aircraft, and form a critical foundation for all other pilot skills, yet some flight training syllabi gloss over fundamentals too quickly.  Did you instructor rush your through fundamentals?  Are you fully in control of the aircraft?  Have you mastered all of the flight controls?

In this seminar, San Carlos Flight Center Chief Pilot, Dan Dyer, reviews key characteristics taken from his Proficient Private Pilot series of seminars, and draws your attention to ways you can improve your fundamental skills.  

Owner, flight instructor and Chief Pilot at SCFC, Dan Dyer has dedicated much of his life to aviation. Flying for more than 10 years, Dan formulated his trainings around SCFC’s motto: safety, community, and adventure. Dan’s enthusiasm for learning has helped to make SCFC the fastest growing flight school in the Bay Area. With Dan, learning can be fun.
