Flight School

So you want to learn to fly? This course provides you with a first step in exploring how/if you’d like to pursue it further. It’s a dose of real flight preparation from the overview in Session 1 to, if you choose, an actual flight simulator lab at CRAFT, Inc. in Session 3 and on towards getting your license. Guest speakers talk on real-world decision-making situations. Topics covered include Aerodynamics 101, Regulations (FARs) 101, Weather 101, Attitude 401, Aptitude 401 (your end goal), and how flying positively impacts every portion of your professional life. Included in the Session 3 lab is five minutes of simulator flight preflight briefings; 50 minutes of actual full-motion flight with a FAA-certified instructor pilot; and five minutes of administrative debriefing.
