Mastering Stick And Rudder Flying for iOS

By Sporty's Pilot Shop $149.99

Developer's Description

Mastering Stick And Rudder Flying is designed to improve your stick and rudder skills, so that you can reduce your chances of an accident. This is no "sit-and-watch" video: this is interactive, computer-based training, consisting of over six hours of "cut-to-the-chase" stick and rudder "enlightenment." You'll find amazing 3D graphics and interaction, straight-talking "how to" guidance, practical tips, and engaging storiesall related to stick and rudder flying.Around 30% of GA pilots now fly aircraft with complex computerized cockpit instrumentation (i.e., glass cockpits). As a pilot, you either fly one of these aircraft currently, or you'll do so in the near future. The FAA commissioned a study and found that many aviators have difficulty manually flying the airplane. Our newfound reliance on automation and computerized technology has found its way into the most basic of GA aircraft. And, pilots are using that technology as a crutchthey're failing to maintain (and even abandoning) their stick and rudder skills due to lack of use and insufficient training. The study also found that when pilots hand-fly the aircraft, they become confused and disoriented, partly due to their reliance on watching the automation do the flying. And, they found that pilots have inadequate stick and rudder technique during rare and unexpected emergency circumstances.Even the most basic of stick and rudder flying is a problem. Consider crosswind landings. Do you really know how to perform a crosswind landing correctly? Do you really know the factors involved in using aileron, rudder, and elevator and the various forces that occur during a tough crosswind landing? Or, take the power curve. Do you fully understand it? Do you know how mismanagement of thrust and drag can get you into an accident? Mastering Stick And Rudder Flying will describe these topics and morestep by step. It contains 20 such focused lessons to help you improve your technique.Lessons Included:How To Get The Most From This TrainingNTSB StatisticsCockpit ManagementNight FlightTraffic Patterns 101Controlled Flight Into Terrain (CFIT)Ground EffectCrosswind TakeoffsSoft-Field TakeoffsShort-Field TakeoffsStabilized ApproachesCrosswind LandingsShort-Field LandingsSoft-Field LandingsForward Slip To A LandingGo-Arounds/Rejected LandingsThe Power CurveSlow FlightStall BasicsPower-Off StallsPower-On StallsFinal ExamFeatures Included20 focused lessons to improve your stick and rudder techniqueOver 350 scenes of captivating content and visualsOver 6 hours of narrated instructionHangar Time sidebars that give additional technique, perspectives, stories, and safety-related considerationsStatistics and case studies that describe errors that other pilots have madeInteractive "hands-on" learning that gives you that "moment" of true understandingColorful 3D graphics and animationsQuizzes at the end of each lesson50-question Final Exam to test your knowledgeFAA WINGS credit to reward you for your hard work
