👩‍✈️ Welcome back to Angle of Attack, your go-to platform for real-world flight lessons, aviation education, and all things flying! ✈️

If you’re a future pilot, an aviation geek, or someone looking to learn to fly, today’s pilot training video is just for you. I’m your dedicated CFI (Certified Flight Instructor), and we’ve got Sienna, a rising female pilot and student pilot working diligently on her private pilot certificate. She’s been acing her online ground school but is now eager for some hands-on flying lessons in a Cessna 172.

🔹 What’s the Lesson Plan?

As part of our flight school curriculum, today we’re focused on takeoffs and landings. We’re up in the Alaskan skies, giving you a taste of Alaska flying, which offers a unique and challenging environment for flight instruction. In this flight training video, we aim to teach Sienna, and you, the viewer, how to land an airplane effectively.

🔹 Why Cover the Instrument Panel?

If you’ve been through your online ground school, you’ll know that while instruments are important, they aren’t everything. Sienna has been a bit instrument-obsessed, so we’re covering up the panel. Why? To teach her to fly by the aircraft’s attitude, the engine’s sound, and visual cues. In essence, we want her to learn to land the airplane using her senses, honing her aviation skills beyond the dials.

🔹 What’s In Store For You?

Experience a female pilot’s journey through aviation education.
Understand the intricacies of airplane takeoff and airplane landing.
Gain situational awareness insights crucial for any aspiring aviator.
Discover the art and science behind flying lessons in a Cessna 172.
🔹 Why is This Important?

Being an effective pilot isn’t just about acing your flight instruction lessons. It’s also about real-world flight experience. So, whether you’re watching this as part of your own flight training or you’re simply interested in what it takes to become a pilot, this video is an invaluable resource.


Let’s continue to revolutionize flight school and aviation education together! Fly safe, everyone! 🛫
