Transition to Turbocharged Aircraft
Key areas you will need to safely and smoothly transition to a turbocharged airplane.
Is turbocharged flying in
your future? Pilots who fly turbocharged aircraft enjoy greatly improved climb
and cruise performance, particularly noticeable at higher altitudes. But with
great privilege comes great responsibility, and pilots operating turbo aircraft
need to develop a deeper understanding of their engine systems and operations
than many private pilots have of their trusty 4-cylinder trainer. The good news
is it can be learned.
In this seminar, San Carlos
Flight Center CFII Tucker Lambert introduces
the key areas you will need to safely and smoothly transition to a turbocharged
airplane. He will cover the critical topics of proper power management, limits
in use of maximum power during takeoff and climb, and general rules on leaning.
This seminar is intended to be an in-depth introduction to flying turbocharged
aircraft. We may discuss some aspects of various turbo-enhanced aircraft and
engines, but issues and operational recommendations associated with specific
aircraft and/or specific engines, while very important, will not be addressed.
Presenter Tucker Lambert is a full time CFII at
San Carlos Flight Center. He was one of the Top Ten Outstanding Flight Instructors
in the 2014 AOPA Flight Training Excellence Awards. He believes that a pilot is
never truly done learning, and continues to expand his own knowledge and
experience to share with his students.
