The How to Land Course will have you making confident approaches and landings in any scenario!

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!

Landings are hard. You know this if you've done any amount of pattern work in your training. It's not a natural skill we humans have to take a ton or more of a flying tin can and place it on a piece of pavement.

Like anything, landing is about skill and it's about understanding. This course will provide all the understanding I've tried to engender in my students over the years so that they think about landings the right way. Once you've gone through this course, you'll have a number of 'a-ha' moments that will help you see the bigger picture of what's involved in getting your plane on the ground safely.

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.

A Perfect Way to Compliment Private Pilot Ground School

Ground schools like our Private Pilot Course are a great way to gain the knowledge you'll need for the FAA exam and checkride, but they don't get specific on "how" to fly. This is typically left to your in flight instruction with your CFI. This course, however, brings you into the cockpit to give you the same tips and tricks you'll learn up in the air. It's worth at least a dozen hours of time in the traffic pattern!
