  • Aircraft handling through the usual maneuvers (Slowflight, Stalls, Steep Turns etc.)
  • Takeoffs and Landings at both towered and non-towered airports, Crosswind landings
  • Navigation
  • Federal Aviation Regulations
  • Introduction to the Equipment installed (GPS, Autopilot etc.)

If you like, we can expand the Checkout to complete a Flight Review (At least one hour Ground and one hour flight are required for a BFR)
