In some ways, learning to fly is largely about learning to land. Pilots of small planes need to perform at least one safe landing on nearly every flight. It’s the type of skill that is learned once, and then perfected for the rest of a pilot’s life. How are your landings? Would you like to hear a few secrets to landing that can help you improve your landing ability?

Join Chief Pilot Dan Dyer for discussion about landing philosophy and some insider tips on perfecting your landings. In this seminar, learn about the two halves to the flare, the actual role of the pilot (you may be surprised), how important it is to look good, and the critical importance of time spent at altitude playing with the horizon.

This presentation may be of value to student pilots working on learning to land for the first time, but also may offer insights to experienced pilots looking to take their landing ability to the next level. If you want your passengers to be happy about your landings, do not miss this seminar.
