Weather Wise: VFR Flight Planning

One of the major challenges of flying is weather assessment. In this video we cover the major weather issues facing VFR pilots, with an emphasis on how to get a "big picture" understanding of the situation before leaving the ground.

Margins of Safety: Avoiding Power-On Stalls

Year after year, unintended stalls are among the leading causes of fatal aviation accidents. The "departure" or "power-on" stall is practiced during flight training, but in a controlled, coordinated scenario at a high altitude. Unexpected stalls during takeoffs or go-arounds are sudden, sharp, and frightening. At low altitude, even a brief loss of aircraft control may be unrecoverable. This video explains the differences in power-on stall training versus real-world scenarios, the aerodynamics of how stalls occur during takeoffs and go-arounds, and techniques pilots can use to prevent them.

Weather Wise: The AWC Website

Of all the weather websites out there these days, one of the best and most popular is NOAA’s Aviation Weather Center—often referred to as ADDS, or In this brief three-minute video—the second in a series focused on practical weather flying—we explore some of the many resources available at the revamped AWC website, and discuss how pilots can use them to get a more complete picture of the weather prior to flight.

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.
