Flight Instructor Joe’s IFR Preflight Check

December 2013


In a recent blog post by Flight Instructor Joe over at flightinstructorjoe.com, he posted the picture of an askew Artificial Horizon just after start-up, and asks a question: Do you know what to look for when you’re about to complete an IFR flight? For an IFR flight, you must be sure that your instruments are all functioning properly, as you’ll be completely reliant upon them to control the plane.

In Flight Instructor Joe’s blog post, he goes over what you should look at when completing an IFR instrument check, including Pilot heat, a compass check, and more. Head over to his blog to read the complete post.
