Mastering Takeoffs and Landings Online Course



Strategies to Improve Every Takeoff and Landing

Takeoffs and landings are the first and last impressions your passengers take from a flight. Making one great landing feels good, but making consistently great landings and takeoffs is a challenge. They're a source of pride, and something every pilot works on.

But, a lot of pilots get stuck at "I don't know why..." It's hard to identify why the aircraft's floating, or why the nose drifts off centerline in a crosswind. Or, why you bounce when everything else looks like it's perfectly set up.

This course helps you answer "why," so that you can improve your takeoffs and landings in all kinds of conditions. You'll learn strategies, tactics and fundamental principles that you can use on your next flight. They're tools you can come back to throughout your flying career.

Having difficulty timing your flare? You'll learn tips to identify when to flare - and how to keep the control pressures light so that your movements are smooth. Struggling with crosswinds and directional control? You'll learn strategies to immediately stop drift, and a maneuver you can use to perfect your crosswind technique. Frustrated when ATC extends your pattern? You'll learn tactics to alter your pattern to handle traffic and ATC changes, from extended downwinds to long straight-in approaches.

You'll have tools you can immediately use on your next flight, leaving you more confident and capable, no matter what airplane you fly. These strategies and techniques will make your next hour of flight time more valuable. You'll have lifetime access to the course, and it's backed by our 30-day money back guarantee.

What Are Pilots Saying About This Course?

"I struggled with consistent results in landing, especially in crosswinds. This course provides information that I did not get early in training and explains exactly what the aircraft is doing and why. This is the best and most comprehensive online course available." (11/14/17 at 7:57pm)

"Colin, thanks for the email. Enjoying the course. Learned some new things even being instrument rated with 1,000 + landings & takeoffs, in all kinds of winds & conditions. The videos are excellent along with the narration. Navigation is seamless. Great job!" (11/14/17 8:34pm)

A Trusted Source For Training

Over the past four years, more than 5,974,000 people have read our articles. And, we've had the opportunity to answer many of their questions. As flight instructors for over eighteen years, we've learned that knowledge - understanding what's happening and why - makes every flight more successful, and a lot more fun.

You'll learn through nearly three hours of video lessons - between two and fifteen minutes a piece, followed up by review summaries and interactive quizzes. The quizzes immediately reinforce what you've learned, helping you remember the strategies and tactics so that you can use them on your next flight. End of chapter tests help you measure your performance, so you know that you've mastered the subjects.



Knowledge That Improves Your Flying Skills

Nothing can replace flight time. But flight time without strategy and knowledge is simply frustrating - and expensive. The information in this course helps you approach every flight ready to improve. You'll get more out of each takeoff, pattern and landing, because you'll know what to look for. Whether you're a student with ten hours or a seasoned veteran with fifteen hundred, your skills will improve.

And the strategies and tactics apply to any piston, tricycle gear aircraft. While each aircraft has it's own control feel - the fundamentals don't change. And using these principles will help you transition between aircraft, as well.

What You Get In This Course:

You'll cover eight chapters, including:

  • 1) Normal Takeoffs - including technique, common problems and rules of thumb
  • 2) Traffic Patterns - including the fundamentals and how to alter your pattern for traffic and ATC requirements
  • 3) Normal Landings - including techniques for controlling your glide path, timing your flare, and compensating for wind, runway shape or slope, and density altitude
  • 4) Crosswind Takeoffs and Landings - including ways to stop drift and a maneuver you can practice to improve your crosswind correction
  • 5) Reduced Flap Landings - including times you may not want to use your normal flap settings, and techniques to alter your final approach and flare
  • 6) Short Field Takeoffs and Landings - including techniques to control your glide path and airspeed so you don't float on touchdown
  • 7) Soft Field Takeoffs and Landings - including times you may want to use a soft field technique even when you're using a hard surfaced runway
  • 8) Night Takeoffs and Landings - including techniques you can use in well-lit metro areas where the airport can be hard to find, as well as dark rural areas where you feel like you're in a black hole

You'll learn through twenty videos totaling nearly three hours of content, plus nineteen quizzes and nine tests. And you can take each quiz or test as many times as you want, so that you can always reinforce what you've learned.
