BECOME A PART OF THE AVIATION COMMUNITY

From Sporty’s Student Pilot News

by Paul Jurgens

Congratulations, you are either on your way or about to get started on your journey to becoming a pilot. As you begin this adventure, I would like to invite you to become a part of the community.

What community you may ask? Why, the community of general aviation, of course.

Airports may have foreboding fences and things may seem a bit sterile at some flight schools but there is an active and welcoming general aviation community that wants you as a part of it. They may just need your help in finding you!

Why make the effort to help them find you? Because, the general aviation community can be a key resource in your training efforts. You may find an individual mentor or a whole support network of people to help you along your way. A time may come in your training when you are struggling to get through a learning plateau and your support system can help you move to the next level!

VIDEO TIP: WHAT DOES ANGLE-OF-ATTACK REALLY MEAN?

Visual approach slope indicators use a combination of white and red lights next to the runway to help pilots verify they are flying the correct approach angle to the runway. This week’s video takes a closer look at 2 types, VASI and PAPI, to show you how they work and what the various indications mean.
