The Instrument Flight course is designed to introduce students to the challenging concepts associated with flying without visual reference during instrument flight conditions. Students will examine the following topics in this course: aviation weather, national airspace system, air traffic control system, flight instruments, navigation systems, instrument flight planning and flight procedures, and instrument approach procedures. Additionally, the integration of desktop flight simulation will allow hands-on opportunities to explore classroom concepts as well as exposure to simulated instrument flight scenarios. Students will also utilize web-based aviation-related resources to plan and produce real-world instrument flight plans.
