- This course allows you to learn to fly a Cessna 172 without all the added complications, also featured at the end of the course some explanations and demonstrations of flying twin engined aircraft after that you will know whether or not you want to spend thousands in cash at a flying school. or simply learn more about flying online.
- You should be able to use a PC or a Mac Recommend a joystick or better flight yoke with rudder pedals. Awesome in VR.
The USAF train their jet fighter pilots with the VR headset and the controllers. If it is good enough for the airforce it must be good...and it certainly is.
Start in the Cessna 172 and learn to fly the easy way then go on to learn multi engine or tail wheels even helicopters. Flight simulators for PC and Mac are great fun to play with, but do you seriously want to learn how to fly? Have you got the money or the time? are you too old? do you have a medical condition that would stop you? My course is designed to teach you everything you need to know so that at the end you will know whether to commit thousands and thousands of your cash to a flying school, or simply enjoy the pleasures of proper flying on a flight simulator going anywhere you like anywhere in the world. Do something impressive, Learn to FLY! I got my pilots licence in 1996 and regularly fly the flight simulator because I can learn to fly aircraft I would never be able to fly in real life through lack of money or opportunity.
Flying with the VR headset is awesome. It is better than flying the real thing in my opinion because it is free and safe.
The Cessna 172 Skyhawk is a four-person, high-wing single-engine aircraft manufactured by the Cessna company . The Cessna 172 is the most manufactured aircraft in history and probably the most popular training aircraft in the world.
The first models manufactured were delivered in 1956 and it continues to be manufactured, with the number of devices manufactured at more than 43,000 units until 2012 . 1 The Skyhawk's main competitors have been the Piper Cherokee , the Beechcraft Musketeer and the Grumman Cheetah (the latter two are no longer manufactured), and later on the DA40 Star and Symphony SA-160 .
The early 172s were virtually identical to the Cessna 170s , with the same stern shape and the same high landing gear bars, though later versions incorporated a revised landing gear, lower rear, and stern window. Cessna advertised this modification as "Omnivision". The definitive structural development, reached in the mid -sixties , consisted of the glue still used today. The profile of the plane was hardly modified since then, mainly undergoing updates in the avionics and motorization including (especially in 2005 ) the glass cabin Garmin G1000. Production stopped in the mid- 1980s, but it was resumed in 1996 with the Cessna 172R and Cessna 172SP models with respectively 120 kW (160 hp) and 135 kW (180 hp) of power.
The old Skyhawks were delivered with a 110 kW (145 hp) Continental O-300 engine, while later versions mounted 135 kW (180 hp) Lycoming O-360 thrusters , although the 110 or 120 kW O-320 versions are more common. In addition there are a few units that mounted 164 kW (220 hp) Franklin engines.
- Anyone at all who seriously wants to learn to fly up to Twin engine but cannot afford it at this stage.
Introduction to the Cessna 172 for someone who has never seen one before.
I have hundreds of hours P1 on the Cessna 172 I used to have one many years ago at my flying school at Shoreham G-BOOL . She was a tatty old 172N with old avionics and well worn seats but we all loved her. Today I love to fly a brand new 172 in VR for free, I fly in real weather and I go everywhere. I love it.
The 172 is easily the best aircraft in the world for general aviation pilots. If you want to learn to fly do it in a 172.
You do not need a VR headset but it is really worth acquiring one as it brings everything to life and you are there. It is difficult to show you 3D on a 2D screen but trust me it is amazing. I always fly in VR now when I am on a sim. I got mine second hand but I am soooo going to buy a better HD one soon.
There is an old type navigation instrument on the aircraft which will point to a radio beacon. This one is situated on an airport. Simply tune in the beacon and if it is in range it will point the way to the airport. Sometimes it has also distance measuring equipment that will tell you how far away the beacon is.
Instrument meteorological conditions (IMC) is an aviation flight category that describes weather conditions that require pilots to fly primarily by reference to instruments, and therefore under instrument flight rules (IFR), rather than by outside visual references under visual flight rules (VFR). Typically, this means flying in cloudy or bad weather. Pilots sometimes train to fly in these conditions with the aid of products like Foggles, specialized glasses that restrict outside vision, forcing the student to rely on instrument indications only.
The weather conditions required for flight under VFR are known as visual meteorological conditions (VMC). IMC and VMC are mutually exclusive. In fact, instrument meteorological conditions are defined as less than the minima specified for visual meteorological conditions. The boundary criteria between VMC and IMC are known as the VMC minima. There is also a concept of "marginal VMC", which are certain conditions above VMC minima, which are fairly close to one or more of the VMC minima.
As I said at the beginning, I am learning to fly the Tornado GR4 aircraft I downloaded from X plane 11, After just 1 week I am flying, navigating and landing this awesome jet fighter in the dark. There is no limit to what you can learn, so never let lack of money be an excuse. The sky really is the limit. ENJOY and blue skies!
Basic introduction to engine fail in a twin and landing on one engine.
STOL is an important skill to learn. see how slow you can fly the aircraft but avoid the use of ailerons as it could induce a stall.
Well done for making it all the way to the end. The 172 in VR I think is better than the real thing as it is free and you can go anywhere in the world. Also everything avionics related works. OK the VR and computer are not free but at the end of the course you still have them. Unlike your cash at the flying school. Helicopters are awesome in VR I could never fly them on the flat screen it was too difficult, So why not save yourself over ten grand and learn in VR?
