Feature Article: Planned Instruction
The military is a leading exponent of programmed instruction.
Under such a program every thing in the future is based upon
the building blocks of the past. There are no surprises or unexpected
events. Every lesson is preceded by a flight briefing that covers
in detail such things as required checklists, radio frequencies,
departure, route, and retune procedures and maneuvers to be performed.
For airwork or landings there should be selected variations that
require differences in technique and airspeed. Your plan should
include parameters for heading and altitude. Any enroute requirements
should include ETA and airport comparisons for checkpoints as
well as total time enroute.
How well you fly is very much dependent on your knowledge of
the aircraft systems. Any system failure will have a system crosscheck
that you can use to evaluate separate the degree of difficulty
that exists. By knowing how the system works, you can make the
safe decision. Knowing the systems, of necessity, includes knowing
the speed and performance limitations for every configuration.
Every pilot must know what malfunction will ground an aircraft.
There is risk in every flight. It is up to the pilot to assess
the risk that exists when any aspect of weather, aircraft or
pilot affects the margin of allowable error. Your decision not
to fly exists up to the point of takeoff. Even the prepared pilot
can be blind sided by the unexpected event. Of all the things
that are covered in the POH and the FARs there are still far
more waiting on the sidelines to surprise you.
