Letter to parents and students
Hi Aviation students!
Well this sure put an interesting twist into our aviation related learning. I'm in the middle of preparing the materials we'll need to fly to the end of the school year in this weird time so thank you for your patience and continue to revisit this space for updates on what we'll be doing.
Briefly, we'll be focusing on meteorology, flight instruments and human factors. I hope to have a few video lessons prepared for you that you'll be able to watch at your leisure added here so you have something else to watch between your Netflix binging episodes :) Also, I'll have some paper based activities for you to complete with the assistance of your From the Ground Up and Flight Training Manual available for pick up or as a downloadable document from here over the coming days.
In the meantime, please explore the different aviation pages and links below. You'll find a variety of different videos and links that will tease your flying curiosities. Recently, I added a link to the Pilot Handbook of Aeronautical Knowledge below. It's the American version of our Flight Training Manual. It's much more picture friendly.
If you haven't already, check out the Redbird Virtual Lab where they are offering a free introduction to aviation certificate just for following along watching the videos and completing a basic quiz for each module. It's a fun set of videos so far and the quizzes are quite simple and fun. Check it out!
I have been busy repairing a set of fiberglass amphibious floats for my SuperCub in the evenings so if you look up in the sky one day and see a red and white float plane - wave!
Please stay tuned to this space for more detailed information coming soon.
