Description

These audio-casts are designed to help me to become comfortable enough to answer most any question and to handle any maneuver required to become a better private pilot. I hope that others will benefit from my notes If you find that any of my information is incorrect or you want to add to the notes yourself, please email marc@preflight.tv .

Student Pilot Instruments

These are the instruments in the Diamond DA-20 that I fly. You can look at the instruments as items that must be referenced on a checklist or as tools to understand how the aircraft is behaving. Here I try to make a connection between each instrument and what is important about each instrument.

That’s fine. The purpose of these notes is to get to the bottom line of the thing being discussed. It is not my goal to be a CFI. However, if you find that anything I’ve said is wrong or out of date, let me know and I’ll make corrections.
