WINGS - Details of Pre-Flight Procedures for Instrument Pilots

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!

    I thought the course was great. I actually liked the questioning of the audience portion. It really makes you stay on your toes. Kind of reminds me of college. Should study a bit before going into the class so that you can answer the questions as they are being asked. I really liked that. Jae, it was nice to see you briefly and Sam, same to you. I am looking forward to next weeks course and will be planning to attend them each week!!!

    Worthwhile. Great that this guy is giving this long series. He is quite knowledgeable. Would be better if he asked fewer questions and presented more.
