Excellent workshops

Postby yycflyer » Sun Dec 30, 2018 6:59 am

Hi Keith & the team

I wanted to say how beneficial and educational the free workshops have been. I recently flew E16 to O09, which is right through Oakland Bravo. Based on what I learned in the workshops, I had confidence to go under the Bravo without diverting my course, through the MOA and to my destination in the mountains. All while VFR and not referring to the GPS. The pilotage and dead reckoning were incredibly accurate, down to less than 1 minute difference on my timings after a 180 nm flight. If any pilot has not viewed the workshops, the time spent is well worth it.

That's really great to hear, I'm glad they helped boost your confidence for real world flying. Dead reckoning and pilotage will keep you 100% engaged in the flight....there's never a dull moment :) Good for you!
