IFR Flight Training with Rod Machado


posted in


This is a 1 1/2 hour YouTube video by Rod Machado published in 2014. He starts with sections on how to properly accomplish an instrument scan while maneuvering, follows that with single-pilot IFR cockpit organization. The video is old enough that it refers to calling Flight Watch, a flight service which was discontinued in October of 2015.  He also discusses working with Air Traffic Control, radar vectors, non-radar environments, approach lighting systems, night IFR operations, non-radar IFR departures, NDB approaches, aircraft load factors/maneuvering speed and a final segment on a student cross-country.
