So, tonight I enjoyed listening to Kimberly talk about her extensive preflight process that she does before every flight she takes. It was very nice to hear that the proper preflight planning is taken seriously. A preflight for VFR flight is mandatory and can really help to make sure your flight goes off without a hitch. HOWEVER, a proper and correct preflight for IFR flight will save your life, and that of your passengers, and that of everyone below you that you may fly into if you have a problem or poor decision making due to situation or just lack of data.
This FAAST WINGS session should be a very interesting session. The instrument preflight is complex and complete. You really have to know weather, systems, limitations, load, and your ability to confidentially fly in the conditions your preflight exposes you to.
See you all there!

Every year dozens of VFR only rated OR non-current (or non-proficient) IFR pilots become part of the accident statistic data. Human Factors is a critical cause of these occurrences. Weather (WX) is a critical factor as well. Aviation Training Curriculum invites you to join in learning vital skills that could save your life and improve your airmanship and decision making during this 16 part free 'weekly' seminar series.
