Dan Dyer
Brief Description:

In some ways, learning to fly is largely about learning to land. Pilots of small planes need to perform at least one safe landing on nearly every flight. It's the type of skill that is learned once, and then perfected for the rest of a pilot's life. How are your landings? Would you like to hear a few secrets to landing that can help you improve your landing ability?

Join CFI Dan Dyer for discussion about landing philosophy and some insider tips on landing coming from his thousands of hours of instruction in nosewheel aircraft. Learn about the two halves to the flare, the actual role of the pilot (you may be surprised), how important it is to look good, and the critical importance of time spent at altitude playing with the horizon. This presentation may be of value to student pilots working on learning to land for the first time, but also may offer insights to experienced pilots looking to take their landing ability to the next level.

Dan Dyer is Chief Pilot of San Carlos Flight Center and has been instructing for 11 years, first in helicopter and now in airplanes. He has almost 4,000 flight hours and is the Bay Area's local expert in crosswind landing instruction. For years, he has taught a highly regarded Private Pilot ground school in San Carlos and is known for finding simple and innovative ways to explain complex topics. He regularly speaks on advanced ground school topics, and was one of the founders of the Bay Area FlyOutGroup - a social club of over 350 pilots that meet for lunches, dinners, and other fun aerial adventures.
