The VFR Radio Communications Course will get you to overcome your "mic fright."

FlightInsight was created by a University Aerospace Professor who wanted pilots everywhere to have access to the same comprehensive, rigorous training curriculum that students have. Read the Course Syllabus here!

Making the right radio calls and understanding transmissions is about more than just memorizing scripts. It involves understanding where you are in a certain flight, and where you're going to be and what you want.

This course is more than just what to say: it's like a mini Private Pilot ground school incorporating airspace, weather, navigation and regulations, because learning the radios needs a holistic approach.

Hear from Our Pilots

Your videos are gold! The visuals were very helpful in trying to understand something on a micro level. I found myself thinking if only someone could make diagrams and then found this beauty. Thanks for this!

- Shawn Holmes

I actually got this. Fantastic on you for putting this in a way I can get, wish I had professors like you when I was learning math, physics...

- William Potts

Love the clear, patient and calm presentation! For me, I find this type of communication more effective; I personally need amplification of basic principles and a calm instructor who makes the subject matter clear. As a novice who doesn't want to drink from a fire hydrant of information, I'm very impressed. Thanks!

- JL Murrel

Your content is no-nonsense to the point and precisely filling a gap a lot of other guys are filling with some sort of vanity. Well done and keep at it!

- Drew Rodaniche

One of the best, most applicable lessons I've ever seen on airspace!! Well done.

- Veni Amavi

I especially liked your scientific approach of gathering empiric evidence; this is what really convinced me and let me grasp the concepts. Thanks again! More pilot training courses please.
