This program utilizes the Jeppesen Professional Pilot Curriculum. This is the second half of the book most people initially acquired for the instrument course. The course will expand upon the basic principles and understanding you gained as a private pilot. You will learn more detailed performance and systems information and carefully study the aircraft you will be flying. After flying the past 40 or so hours only on instruments, one major challenge will be getting the eyes outside again and controlling by visual references. Also, the small and gentle control pressures we stressed in instrument flying are now set aside and you are trained to be more forceful in making the aircraft fly the profiles you want. Many pilots need to build up some cross-country and night solo time to qualify for the commercial so there are day and night 200 mile cross-country trips to accomplish. We know you are ready when all the experience requirements are met and you can dead stick the aircraft onto a pre-determined spot on the runway within 200 feet.
