SINGLE PILOT IFR: SKILLED, CONFIDENT, AND SAFE
In this seminar, Doug Stewart, the creator of the "East Coast IFR Experience" will discuss the challenges and the risks of flying in instrument conditions. Drawing on his wealth of experience, he will offer numerous tips on how to manage the risks, and become a safe and confident pilot not only in the IFR world, but in the VFR environment as well.
HAZARDOUS ATTITUDES: COULD YOU RECOVER?
We all have at least one, if not more, hazardous attitudes residing within ourselves that could have a negative effect on the way we make Aeronautical Decisions. This seminar looks at how to identify those attitudes, and more importantly how to counter them before their impact on our decisions leads to a more lethal impact.
THE CHANGING PARADIGM FOR FLIGHT INSTRUCTION IN THE 21ST CENTURY
The advent of Technically Advanced Aircraft and Light Sport Aircraft has required that the way we address flight instruction be changed. The necessity to put more emphasis on decision making in the training of pilots has never had greater importance. With that, the need for flight instructors to be impeccable professionals has never been greater. Doug Stewart, 2004 National CFI of the Year, will address all three issues in this seminar.
In this entertaining and informative seminar Master CFI Doug Stewart confesses to some of the mistakes he has made during the course of logging over 10,000 hours of flight time. More importantly, he explains how and why these mistakes were made. It is a good look at the operational errors a pilot can make and how “human factors” play a large part in the safety of flight.
GPS FOR VFR
Familiarity with GPS is essential, because it is the navigation
system of the future. Master CFI Doug
Stewart lends his own personal touch in this update to
the Air Safety Foundation seminar. All pilots, whether GPS-proficient
or new to the technology, will benefit from this educational and
entertaining safety seminar.
- Advantages and disadvantages of using GPS
- GPS capabilities
- How GPS works
- How to navigate using GPS
- Traps and tricks of GPS navigation
“GEE, MY INSTRUCTOR NEVER TOLD ME THAT”
Quite often, what differentiates an average pilot from a great
pilot are the small things. Master CFI Doug
Stewart has had the opportunity to observe many of these
in giving over 8000 hours of dual instruction.
In this entertaining seminar Doug raises our awareness of the many
small things that are part of situational awareness, not only in
the air, but on the ground as well. Awareness of these things will
not only make us better pilots but, more importantly, safer pilots!
