Flight Operations
Ensuring the safety of flight is the number one priority as a pilot. This course covers various aspects of safety, such as collision avoidance, airport operations and maintaining safe altitudes. Students will learn correct runway and taxiway usage, the essentials of night flying, and how to enter standard traffic patterns utilized at most airports. They will study aeronautical charts which provide topography and navigational information, along with a breakdown of the airspace classifications used by ATC (Air Traffic Control) to coordinate the large amount of air traffic in our skies. Radio procedures and sources of flight information will also be covered.
