CHAPTER TITLE: Introduction to Flight Training
Below is a list of the figures (diagrams, charts, and pictures) from the AFH Chapter 1. They are listed in the order they are found in the Airplane Flying Handbook.
Primary and intermediate flight training teaches basic airmanship skills and creates a good foundation for student pilots.
Good airmanship skills include sound knowledge of the principles of flight and the ability to operate an airplane with competence and precision.
Title 14 CFR, Chapter 1, Aeronautics and Space and subchapters.
FAA Form 8100-2, Standard Airworthiness Certificate.
Example of some of the required, standard or supplemental and optional equipment for an aircraft.
The flight instructor is responsible for teaching and training.
Sample lesson plan for stall training and recovery procedures.
FAA Form 8000-4, Air Agency Certificate.
Airman Certification Standards (ACS) developed by the FAA.
Most midair collision accidents occur in good weather.
Proper scanning techniques can mitigate midair collisions. Pilots must be aware of potential blind spots and attempt to clear the entire area that they are maneuvering in.
Three major areas contributing to runway incursions are communications with air traffic control (ATC), airport knowledge, and flight deck procedures.
Sedona Airport is one of the many airports that operate without a control tower.
All student pilots must receive and log flight training in stalls and stall recoveries prior to their first solo flight.
Stalls occur when the airfoils angle of attack reaches the critical point which can vary between 16° and 20°.
Checklists have been the foundation of pilot standardization and flight safety for many years.
