Instrument Cockpit Check Preparation

A pre-flight inspection is a key to a safe flight. It is important to be familiar with the cockpit of the aircraft and all of the instruments before attempting to fly.

To learn to fly safely, pilots students must know how each instrument works and what indications to look for while in flight.

At The CAVU Pilot, we will provide you with the necessary knowledge and skills to fly safely. Our instrument pilot training will teach you how to use the instruments in the cockpit and ensure they are in good condition. Our flying lessons are a great way to learn more about flying, and our experienced instructors will provide with all the knowledge you need. Contact us today to learn more about our courses!
