Flying Lessons

Giving flying lessons is one of the most difficult things to do. There aren’t many ways to make flying lessons fun, but there are many steps that will make any lesson run smoothly. Teachers should begin by teaching students how to do pre-flight checks on the airplane. Students should be taught what to look for in pre-flight checks, and what to do if they discover a problem during the check. After mastering the pre-flight checks students should be allowed to move onto the flying of the airplane. It’s good to start the students out with simple and easy instructions on their first day of flying lessons. Learning how to taxi down the runway, how to takeoff, and fly at proper level, can be a lot for students to learn. So, teachers should be sure to progress at a workable pace for the student. It’s also important to teach students how to descend and land the plane, and students should learn the post flight procedures. Teachers should make sure students understand post flight procedure, and that students can perform these procedures accurately.

Progressively students should learn about flight communications, and learn the functions and locations of flying instruments. Flying lessons should also include lessons on safety and emergency procedures. It is important for students to learn emergency procedures, so they will be able to respond properly to any probable emergency. More advanced students may be able to learn “touch and go” landings, and will be able to learn how to land in bad weather conditions, and how to land without some of the landing gear.

Eventually students will graduate to the level of being eligible to go on cross country flights. Students should also be able to learn how to open and close flight plans as well as what to do if they don’t have communications with the tower. The flying lessons should also teach them how to fly across country using navigation techniques, and how to fly at night. Flight instructors should prepare their students for the flight test, and should actively give their students as much help as possible to make them successful in their future flights.
