Virtual Flight School

Welcome to the Digital Aviator! The purpose of this website is to serve as a hub for everything related to flight training in a simulator. Take a look at the lesson structure to see what you will learn. I write detailled lessons on this website, and then give you a live example in a video on youtube.

Ep 04: Before takeoff (Normal Procedures)

Before we take off there are a few more checks we need to complete. First we perform an engine runup: testing the engine components at high RPM. Then we do a before takeoff checklist and a departure briefing.

Flowlist

The flowlist is a step by step guide to the C172SP in a checklist format. The flowlist is an ever changing document, so mistakes that are currently present may be fixed in the future. I might also remove or add parts to the document. This document is the result of personal research and experience. In no way is this document official and should it be used for professional or real world purposes.

Traffic patterns

The traffic pattern is probably the most common procedure you need to learn. Not only is it the preferred method of leaving and entering the area near an airfield, it is also hugely useful in training takeoffs, landings and general aircraft control.
