This is an FAA video and is the work product of the US Government and, as such, carries no copyright and is free for use. This video covers pilot training on the subject of wake turbulence. I believe it is from 1974.
I have a lot of FAA videos to upload, I estimate around 30, and will be converting them and uploading over the next few weeks. Please subscribe to stay informed of new uploads.

My Student Pilot Journey

No Comments

I'm a licensed pilot!! Since getting my private pilot kit from Gleim in May of 2012 and my first flight lesson in July 2012 to my checkride on June 25, 2014, it's been a long, well-spent journey to achieve my private pilot's license at the age of 18. Such a rewarding industry aviation is. I wouldn't give anything up for it.

To describe a little bit on checkride day, it began on June 25, 2014. The trek began to Greenwood, SC. I finished the IACRA application and the FAA Form 8710-1 (as a backup), collected my current AF/D and sectional, grabbed the maintenance logs, and made sure I had everything else needed for my checkride before we left the ground in Gainesville, GA. We arrived at Greenwood with about an hour to spare for me to relax a bit. The examiner showed up about 10 minutes late and we immediately began the paperwork and went straight into the oral exam. After panicking over this for the past week, I nailed it. As we finished, he said, "You made that look easy. Now, are you ready to fly?" A sigh of relief passed as we walked out to the plane and I began to pre-flight the aircraft. We climbed into the plane and made final checks. First embarrassing mistake of the day which I can attribute to being pretty nervous, I forget to turn the mags to both and begin cranking the engine. It took me a second to realize my mistake and quickly fixed it. The rest of the flight went uneventfully. He didn't say a word during the flight except to tell me to perform the maneuvers. I knocked out item after item on his checklist and greased the landings. I taxied in and shut down the engine; waiting for a thumbs up, he said, "You made that easy on me. Congratulations." We walked inside to finalize everything and get my temporary certificate printed. Smiles on the faces of both my CFI and my own, we made the trip home.
