Prep School - Preparing For Takeoff - Approach - Landing
Learning to master the hardware, software, preparation, and thinking for Takeoff, Approach, and Landing
Date and Time:
Wednesday, October 9, 2019, starting at 19:00 Central Daylight Time (17:00 PDT, 18:00 MDT, 20:00 EDT, 14:00 HST, 16:00 AKDT, 17:00 Arizona, 00:00 GMT)
Thomas P. Turner
Brief Description:

There’s a lot that goes into preparing for takeoff, approach and landing. Not only must you manage the hardware, that is, the controls, configuration and switches that go into efficiently and safely flying in these regimes, you must also master the software—the planning, preparation and thinking. 

Topics we’ll cover include:

  • Using factory and other checklists correctly and efficiently 
  • Tips for customizing checklists to your airplane and your operation
  • What you need to be thinking about as you go into each of these flight regimes 
  • Preparing yourself and the airplane for emergencies 
  • Techniques to prevent the most common emergencies in these flight regimes

Viewers will be able to type in their questions to be answered during the event. We’ll explain how to do so at the beginning of the webinar.

Although this American Bonanza Society program is oriented toward pilots of Beech Bonanzas, Debonairs, Barons and Travel Airs, the discussion, techniques and procedures described are valuable to the pilot of any airplane.
