Ground 1 - Instrument Training

Objective

The purpose of this lesson is to:

  • introduce the learner to the training requirements for the instrument rating
  • develop the learner's understanding of how single-pilot resource management (SRM) concepts apply to flight in the IFR environment
  • develop the learner's understanding of how aviation physiology factors that apply to flight in the IFR environment
Preparation

Study these chapters in the Jeppesen Instrument Commercial Textbook and answer the end-of-section review questions.

  • Chapter 1: Building Professional Experience
    • Section A: Instrument/Commercial Training & Opportunities
    • Section B: Advanced Human Factors Concepts
