PilotWorkshops.com has announced the general availability of its free IFR Emergency video, a recording of a popular online webinar that has been seen by more than 10,000 general aviation pilots. Previously available only to its “Pilot Tip of the Week” subscribers, the video is especially compelling for those flying single pilot IFR, and it can now be seen by all pilots at http://pilotworkshop.com/webinar/ifremergency.
This fast-paced, 30-minute program deals with a hair-raising emergency in IMC. PilotWorkshops.com founder Mark Robidoux and expert instructor Bob Nardiello walk viewers through this challenging scenario, which presents the conditions of the emergency and provides the viewer with a choice of options. After the viewer makes their choice, Bob walks through the particulars of how this emergency should be handled and reviews a simple, life-saving procedure.
The viewer then listens to excerpts from a roundtable of four, highly skilled IFR instructors as they dissect the scenario and offer more input and tips. Upon completion, the viewer acquires a solid understanding of the factors involved and clear tactics for handling this type of emergency.
The IFR Emergency program is based on PilotWorkshops.com’s IFR Mastery Series, a scenario-based training program for IFR pilots. Each month, a new scenario is presented using short, focused video segments, as well as online tools, quizzes, PDF resources, and roundtable audio segments. Integral to the IFR Mastery Series is a private discussion forum where PilotWorkshops.com’s expert instructors participate in related discussions and answer questions from members. Pilots can receive three WINGS credits for each session completed.
