AVI 172 - Private Pilot Flight Training

Credits: 2
Lecture Hours: 1
Lab Hours: 2
Practicum Hours: 0
Work Experience: 0
Course Type: Voc/Tech
This course provides supervised dual and solo flight instruction that meets the required hours to qualify as a candidate for a FAA Private Pilot check-ride. Areas covered in flight training include preflight operations, flight maneuvering by reference to ground objects, flight at critically slow air speeds and recovery from stalls, takeoffs and landings, control and maneuvering an aircraft, cross-country flying and emergency operations.
Prerequisite: Third-class physical, completion of or concurrent registration in AVI 130  
Competencies
  1. Demonstrate preflight procedures and maneuver the aircraft on the ground.
    1. Familiarize the student with aircraft cockpit checks, required certifications and documents and preflight inspection checks.
    2. Familiarize the student with aircraft engine start-up, radio communications, and navigational instruments.
    3. Explain the operation of the aircraft on the ground during the taxi procedures, breaking and steering the aircraft.
    4. Demonstrate aircraft run-up, flight, instruments, systems and engine checks.
  2. Explain procedures used for take-off, climb, and cruise flight.
    1. Demonstrate before take-off checks.
    2. Demonstrate radio communications for takeoff clearance.
    3. Explain procedures for normal and crosswind takeoffs.
  3. Explain basic flight maneuvers flight maneuvers.
    1. Describe basic principles of straight and level flight.
    2. Explain the basic operating principles of level shallow and medium turns.
    3. Demonstrate how to track a straight line with wind correction.
    4. Explain climbs, descents, and level off in the aircraft.
    5. Demonstrate how to avoid aircraft and runway incursions.
  4. Demonstrate emergency procedures and aircraft performance capabilities.
    1. Describe hazards of improper airplane loading, and the effect on the aircraft in uncoordinated flight.
    2. Explain the procedures to handle engine failure in takeoff run, after takeoff and in-flight.
    3. Discuss the proper procedure to land the aircraft with a flat tire.
    4. Explain the procedures to execute a forced landing with power or no power.
  5. Demonstrate an effective landing using proper procedures.
    1. Identify the airport traffic pattern and use the proper communication and traffic pattern entry
    2. Describe the pre-landing checklist and procedures.
    3. Demonstrate how to announce landing intentions in non-controlled environment.
    4. Demonstrate how to have a stabilized approach to landing.
    5. Explain the proper use of flaps for the landing approach and touch-down.
    6. Determine if wake-turbulence or wind shear will be a factor and avoidance strategies
    7. Demonstrate slips to a landing.
    8. Demonstrate a go-around procedure if the landing cannot be performed safely.
    9. Demonstration of drift correction and cross-wind landing procedures.
  6. Apply emergency procedures
    1. Demonstrate the procedures, airspeeds, and communications involved in forced landings.
    2. Discuss the procedures for dealing with an aircraft fire during start-up, in the engine or electrical system, in-flight, in the cabin or on the wing of the aircraft.
    3. Discuss how icing can affect an aircraft in flight, blocking the static port or carburetor ice.
    4. Determine procedures to be used with an electrical over voltage light and/or ammeter discharge
  7. Describe basic instrument flight
    1. Explain how to fly the aircraft with only the instruments, no outside references.
    2. Interpret instruments to show climbs, descents, turns and straight and level flight.
    3. Utilize the turn coordinator and demonstrate how to time turns to make roll out more precise.
  8. Demonstrate ground reference maneuvers
    1. Describe clearing turns and collision avoidance.
    2. Demonstrate rectangular pattern with focus on wind correction, distance and altitude.
    3. Demonstrate turns around a point with focus on wind correction, distance and altitude.
    4. Demonstrate S-turns with focus on wind correction, distance and altitude.
  9. Describe navigation and cross-country flight
    1. Examine the use of the VOR system
    2. Describe the use of the GPS system
    3. Explain the procedures used for pilotage and dead reckoning.
