Pilot Rust Remover

Rust Remover: For Qualified Aeroplane & Helicopter Pilots

Familiarity is a good thing when it comes to flying. The more familiar we are with the aircraft, the airfield, the airspace, the procedures, the route, and the weather, the more confident we will be when we finally get to the fun part, taking off and flying. Too much familiarity, however, is not such a good thing. Confidence comes from familiarity but can easily turn into complacency. The line between the two is very thin.

Over reliance on technology for flight planning and navigation purposes is common place these days for many pilots, just turn on Sky Demon, tap and go, is a very dangerous philosophy. What happens if the battery fails or the military are performing a jamming exercise and the satellite signal is lost? Did you plan the route manually on a paper based chart just in case? Did you do the mass and balance or a performance calculation? It’s a legal requirement. So many of us forget.

As its name suggests, our PPL Rust Remover course has been designed to address all of these issues and blow away the proverbial cobwebs, remove the rust and polish your planning skills! Reacquaint yourself with the techniques and procedures once acquired on your PPL Ground School course covering:
