Class of August 15, 2017 – Flight Planning 2

Hello Everyone,

We’ll start this week’s class discussing your flight logs. Remember that the wind is 300/13.

Then we’ll continue with Aircraft Performance.

A heads up: next weeks homework will be to do the test in the Sample Test for the written examination for the Private Pilot Licence – Airplane, TP 13014E. Et c’est ici en français.

We’ll discuss in class the two routes in the test, and measure the track and distance together.

Nevertheless this test will take four hours to complete, so you’ll have to plan ahead.

Then on August 23 we will discuss the answers. Don’t worry if there are a couple that don’t make sense. This exam is based on an old chart.

See you Tuesday!

Then we’ll take a break from regulations and do the first class in Airframes and Systems. So many of you are already flying that it is time to talk about some of these systems in class.

See you tomorrow!
