Secrets of Instrument Approaches and Departures

A course by Rod Machado


Rod Machado’s NEW 8-hour interactive eLearning course titled, Secrets of Instrument Approaches and Departures is now available! If you’re an active IFR pilot or preparing for an IPC or even your ATP or IFR rating, then this course is for you. Why? Because the IFR pilot’s weakest link is approach and departure knowledge as it relates to instrument charts.

Rod has spent many many years of traveling around the country discussing instrument procedures with GA and Airline pilots. During that time it became apparent to him that pilots were asking very similar questions about things for which they couldn’t find answers but needed to know to fly IFR safely and confidently. Well, that’s what this course is about—providing answers to these questions and more. So let Rod be your instrument knowledge resource here in this eight-hour course. We know you’ll find it educational, interesting and thought-provoking, regardless of your ratings or skill level.
