The Two Systems I Had to Master to Become a Corporate Pilot: Aircraft Pressurization and Retractable Landing Gear

Sat Jan 27 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Airplanes come in all shapes and sizes. As you advance in your abilities, you step up to faster, bigger airplanes. Along with increased payload and speed comes new systems. Two systems that are new on this journey are Pressurization and Retractable Landing Gear Systems.

Commercial pilot Brandan Dadoun returns to share how his knowledge of pressurization and landing gear systems was enhanced with experience in flying airplanes that actually depend on these critical systems. Brandan received his commercial rating in 2022 but since that time he has flown several advanced airplanes. He is going to shed light on pressurization and landing gear systems and take it from book knowledge to practical experience.

While not every pilot may operate this equipment, it can still be fascinating to understand its inner-workings and applicability on your next commercial flight. Or for those pursuing a commercial rating, the ACS requires knowledge of these advanced systems. Either way, join us to have an understanding of these fascinating aircraft systems.


Brandan Dadoun is commercial multi-engine rated and a corporate pilot flying the King Air 350. Brandan completed all of his flight training at SCFC and has been involved in the community since 2015. He was formerly the Events Manager at SCFC where he served in his role for many years. Outside of flying and presenting, he enjoys playing the saxophone and living an active lifestyle.
