Airplane Flight Maneuvers


Michael Lessard, CFII/MEI

This course is an important element of flight training programs for student pilots learning to fly airplanes. It is also a comprehensive resource for experienced pilots who want to expand their flying proficiency and aeronautical knowledge, those pilots preparing for additional certificates and ratings, flight instructors who are training pilots at all levels, and pilots transitioning to multiengine, turboprop, and turbojet aircraft.

This course provides detailed explanations and graphic illustrations of all private and commercial pilot flight maneuvers, and discusses common errors made by students when learning them. We have married the content of this course with the associated references from the new FAA Private Pilot Airplane Airman Certification Standards (ACS) so students are prepared to practice and complete the maneuvers to check ride standards. This also reinforces the student’s integration of aeronautical knowledge gained throughout the academic process with a thorough understanding of risk management associated with every aspect of the flight. This course provides continuous quizzing to assess the students understanding of this complex subject matter. It is the combination of these important elements, along with quality ground and flight training experiences that will make today’s students the best in the history of aviation.

Course Format:
Online, self-paced course delivered on the WINGsReality EDU Learning Management System (LMS). Modules are conveniently organized in a logical sequence, and designed to be used both as a reference as well as a study guide for upcoming training flights and a debriefing and evaluation after the flights.
