#IFR training with with Dennis preparing for my proficiency check. This episode covers IFR training with Dennis and Justin; we execute several approaches and go arounds using the automation of the new Garmin Avionics in the Van’s Aircraft RV-14.
At the time of this training, I was recently out of IFR currency; due for my IPC Instrument Proficiency Check, which is basically a check ride we have to do here every 2 years. I knew I’d be flying the much more complex and capable avionics, so I arranged to fly the IPC in this airplane BUT needed to get training to do so. At that point I had ~50 hours VFR flying (use iPhone shots of flying it to ZBA solo?) and had a basic understanding of the autopilot, but had not been doing any advanced programming of the avionics, etc…
- Flying IFR in actual IFR can be dangerous stuff.
- There is no substitute for proper training in your own equipment.
- The consequences are just too dire. Find a good instructor, learn your equipment.
- TAKE IT SERIUOUSLY.
- Take it on with caution and respect.
- Don’t jump into the deep water right away;
- And get recurrent training once in a while.
Having been working closely with Dennis for over a decade, I am proud to be able to recommend his services to anyone that wants to take their flying to the next level. Our relationship started when I was a rusty VFR pilot needing to get recurrent… that led to Dennis introducing me to tailwheel flying which changed everything about where I was headed as an aviator. Then came multi engine and IFR flying. It’s been awesome to have Dennis as a mentor all these years!
