Flight TrainingIn order to provide the best possible training we have standardized:
- the training program
- the material used for training and instructing
- flight training and progress records
- a "Cross Check", where a student is requirerment to fly at least twice with another instructor during the training period
- a liability release form which includes the instructor as well as Utah Soaring Assosiation
Glider Training Manuals
We have adopted the Holtz Flight Training material as the standard. It includes:
Glider Pilot's Handbook of Aeronautical Knowledge.
It contains all of the information that a student must learn to meet the FAA requirements and to pass the FAA written test.
Flight Training Manual for Gliders.
Each chapter addresses a separate stage of flight, such as takeoff, landing.
Flight Training and Progress Records
To keep track of training progress we are using this Flight Training Progress Record document. Notes, Comments and Cross Checks are documented as well.
During the training period a student must fly at least twice with an instructor other than the primary instructor.
Every student must sign the Liability Release and Assumption of Risk Agreement form.
