October 11 (Wed) 7:00pm Tips for Improving Your Landings

Event Date: 
Wednesday, October 11, 2017 - 7:00pm

Flying is a nuanced muscle/mental coordination skill, and that is never more true than when landing.  A good pilot juggles four primary controls simultaneously to position the aircraft safely and correctly for landing.  Passengers grade us on our landings, but are they even watching what is important?  How can a mediocre pilot bump themselves up a few notches in landing ability?

CFI Dan Dyer has about 8,000 landings from both left and right seat, and loves breaking down the complex art of airplane landing into its components.  In this presentation, Dan will share some tips you can use to improve your landing ability.  Some of these tips are just getting your head right about the role of the pilot and the goal for the landing.  Some of the tips are exercises you can practice yourself the next time you fly, to build up your physical skills and your eye-hand coordination.

If your landings need improvement, this seminar may be able to get your started on the right track.  

Dan Dyer is Chief Pilot of San Carlos Flight Center and has been instructing for 11 years, first in helicopter and now in airplanes. He has almost 4,000 flight hours and is the Bay Area's local expert in crosswind landing instruction. He is known for finding simple and innovative ways to explain complex topics and regularly speaks on advanced ground school topics.  He co-founded and manages the Bay Area FlyOutGroup - a social club of over 400 pilots that meet for lunches, dinners, and other fun aerial adventures.
