Teaching Confidence in the Clouds
Teaching Confidence in the Clouds offers real-life application of computer desktop flight
simulators and flight training devices (PCATDs and Basic ATDs) as they relate to current methods of instrument training.
Since they were first adopted in 1997, FAA-approved desktop flight simulators have been an effective means to train students in the US. Increasingly, flying schools in the UK are recognizing the benefits of simple non-approved desktop simulators for refresher training, student practice and low-cost extra tuition.
The scenario-based training concepts, training assignments, and instructor tips included in this book will be a valuable resource for flying instructors and help reduce the number of hours needed to complete an instrument training programme.
It may also be a valuable source of advice and inspiration for any pilot wishing to self-teach or practice, using a desktop PC-based simulator.
