PRIMARY MOTORGLIDER ADD-ON TRAINING PROGRAM
BEGINNING STUDENT GLIDER PILOT
Each training session is two hours long. Multiple training sessions can be taken in one day. Each session includes:
• 1 Hour ground instruction
1 to 2 Hour Dual Flight Training Sessions
These sessions begin with a short pre-flight briefing with your instructor to discuss that day's lesson plan and objectives.
Typically you will make either 1 longer flight, for aero tow and air work maneuvers, or 2 to3 shorter flights, for landing pattern practice, per session.
After your flights, you and your instructor will have a detailed post-flight debriefing. Your instructor will finish the session by going over what you need to study for the next lesson
SECONDARY GLIDER TRAINING PROGRAM
ADVANCED STUDENT GLIDER PILOT & ADD-ON
5 to 7 hours session in 1 or 2 days
2 to 3-Hour Ground Training Session(s)
To complete the private pilot glider course you will need to complete the knowledge section of the course syllabus with your instructor. The knowledge section of the course syllabus is mostly independent of the flight training section.
This allows you to work on the knowledge section with your instructor on days when the weather conditions are not flyable. Your goal should be to finish the knowledge section of the syllabus before or at about the same time you finish the flight training
3-5 Hours Flight Training Session(s)
For transitioning pilots or Add-on to a Power Pilot Certificate, first a glider rating is needed. Then a Motorglider/SelfLaunch endorsement after training will be added to your logbook. This is a one-time deal. Checklist, power flying, and glider flying techniques will be demonstrated, and the student will be able to practice with the instructor the necessary required maneuvers to qualify for a Motorglider/SelfLaunch endorsement.
