Everything you wanted to know about flying--but were afraid to ask! Sporty's takes the mystery out of flying by explaining everything in layman's terms, not pilot jargon. Learn more about what your pilot is doing (and why) and how you can help make things easier, safer and more enjoyable for everyone involved. From preflight through takeoff and landing and all the way to engine shutdown, this enlightening video explains it all. You'll learn about flying on beautiful sunny days, as well as what's involved when the weather is less than perfect and how the pilot can still fly safely in clouds. Ride along in a new Cessna 172 Skyhawk on a flight across the Midwest and learn the basics of piloting an aircraft as well as the fundamentals of navigation. You'll also experience flight in a "glass-cockpit" Cirrus as the pilot navigates through light rain showers and clouds and utilizes modern avionics equipment in the aircraft. In the end, you'll have a greater understanding and appreciation of flying. Who knows, it may even inspire you to start taking flying lessons!
