Flying: IFR Training Lesson 1

Today marks the start of my training to get my instrument rating.

I went to DCT on Saturday and signed up for the program and began studying.

Today I went to DCT this morning for a ground lesson. I had Adam as my instructor today,  Nice guy and was both enthusiastic and knowledgeable.

We covered flight instrument scans, flight instrument operation and failures, and VORs.

The flight instrument operation, instrument failures and VOR info was mainly a refresher from the private pilot syllabus but was still useful with a b it more detail.  Instrument scan was new and will be highly useful.

First flight should be later this week.

Long time lurker here. I highly recommend the King Schools course for your IFR training. Within the last w years I have completed both Instrument and Commercial certificates, and used King for both. Especially useful for the written, using their practice exams. Have fun, the training is challenging but that’s what makes it so rewarding.

SHeppard Air has the latest test questions. Gleim has the better study guide. King schools are good, bt the other two are better.
