INSTRUMENTS FLIGHT PLANNING
The purpose of the Instruments and Flight Planning course review is to provide experience
through actual involvement with course materials, lessen the abstract aspects of learning and
provide for an atmosphere of informal open discussion for the students.
A comprehensive step-by-step overview of Chapters 1-7 is conducted. Specific emphasis is
placed on addressing those concepts that are basic and germane to every NFO. All course-
learning objectives are reviewed for understanding and clarity. An atmosphere of open
discussion serves as the review session format throughout the question and answer period.
Two hours are allotted for the review. During the review, students are encouraged to use
reference materials and training devices as each deems necessary.
Upon completion of the question and answer period, the instructor makes subjective comments
regarding overall class performance with emphasis placed on observed areas of weakness.
