Weather Wise: Gathering Information

Preflight weather planning is one of the most important jobs we do as pilots. It’s the foundation for some of our most critical decisions. But with the sheer amount of weather information available these days, how can we be sure we’re getting what we need? In this short video—the first in a series focused on practical weather flying for pilots—we look at strategies for sorting through the chaff and pinpointing the information that really matters for your upcoming flight.

Margins of Safety: Angle of Attack Indicators

This brief video provides a review of angle of attack (AOA), an introduction to the main types of AOA indicators available for GA pilots, and an overview of how they can be beneficial in stall awareness and prevention. Learn how an AOA indicator can help you avoid exceeding the critical angle of attack.

Survive: Beyond the Forced Landing

Our training prepares us to handle in-flight emergencies, but little is taught about what to do once we’re on the ground in a survival situation. Since not every forced landing results in fatalities or even injuries, a little knowledge on what to do can go a long way. In this video, we’ll discuss some items you should pack in your survival kit and what actions you can take to keep you and your passengers safe until help arrives.
