AOPA Premier Partner PilotWorkshops is offering a new series of personal training sessions for instrument-rated pilots who want to knock off rust or build confidence in their skills. The sessions will be offered at flight schools in six states.
IFR Bootcamp is a daylong session of scenario-based missions flown on an FAA-approved simulator. To increase the realism, the simulator utilizes the PilotEdge voice and data network to provide live air traffic control services during the session.
The simulators can be configured to Beechcraft, Cessna, Cirrus, and Piper aircraft, with more to come. Instrument panels support steam gauges, and the Garmin 430/530 and G1000, Avidyne, or Perspective avionics suites, PilotWorkshops said. Bootcamps will be offered in California, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, New Hampshire, and Texas.
Bootcamps will begin in July. Pricing and schedules are being finalized. For more information, see the website and sign up for emails that will include discount promotional codes.
Pilot Training and Certification,
After a complete electrical failure during an initial climb from the departure airport, the pilot of a Beech King Air 200 learned a valuable lesson from a simple but costly omission.
Unfamiliarity with a newly purchased turboprop proved fatal for a Kansas family returning from a Bahamas vacation in 2012, the NTSB determined.
The FAA has doubled the number of training device hours pilots may count toward an instrument rating following a request from AOPA.
