Written test was complete, so he couldn’t punch me in the face 🙂
In this instalment of the IFR Vlog, Flight Chops and his family are guests in Jim Stroh’s Cirrus SR22T GTS while he prepares for his Instrument Rating. The pilots work through Jim’s personal clearance checklist and flight planner. Luckily, Steve made good on his word and completed the written test before meeting Jim again, so he was spared getting punched in the face 😉
Get caught up with this special VLOG series that gets into all the nitty-gritty details as Steve goes after his Instrument Rating:

I’m a Private Pilot, doing my best to stay current and learn. I fly for fun and might just be the least cocky pilot on the internet! My self analysis videos can seem self deprecating at times, but I am trying to learn from the small mistakes to avoid making a big one; I’m happy to share and find it rewarding to help other pilots or aspiring aviators in any way that I can. How does the saying go? “Experience is a hard teacher because she gives the test first, the lesson afterwards”. And in aviation, not all tests are survivable.
My virtual “ride-along” flying videos are aimed and sharing my experiences and giving back to the aviation community which has been so helpful to me. I shoot multi-camera angles, get detailed real time instrument panel shots, and have radio intercom audio. I respect people’s time, so I put a fair bit of work into editing to keep the videos concise and engaging; I add animations and further graphics and voice overs where needed to add context and explanations.
My hope is to continue to grow and evolve the “Flight Chops” project with input and support from the aviation community!
I am a “weekend warrior” private pilot, I fly for fun with no intentions of going commercial. I have had my PPL for over 15 years, but still consider each flight a learning experience – I generally take detailed notes after each flight to remind myself what went well or what I could do to improve…. Having the GoPro cameras to record flights like this is invaluable. I find these self analysis videos very helpful in my constant quest to improve, and am happy to share.
