Weather Statement Groundschool 3.0

Learn to read METAR\'s, TAF\'s, and Pilot Reports in an interactive environment! Version 3.0 includes training on the new 30-hour TAF codes, plus a new module on Pilot Reports! Weather Statement Groundschool™ is a CD-ROM-based course on METAR’s, TAF’s, and Pilot Reports. Nearly 3 hours of stunning, interactive training is provided. This tutorial on METAR’s, TAF’s, and Pilot Reports is unlike any other such training. It not only teaches the most basic aspects of METAR’s, TAF’s, and Pilot Reports, but also provides training on components that most pilots are unaware of. Still, learning is made easy and fun, through full voice narration and easy-to-use controls. Where this tutorial truly shines: Weather Statement Groundschool promotes learning through human interaction—not just rote memorization. A remarkable feature is the interactive weather controls, which enable the user to “control the weather.” For example, the user can specify wind speed, gust factor, direction, and other variables, and can then view how the weather statement displays this information. Since weather codes are confusing to interpret, the user can click the “Speak-It” button to hear a verbal translation. This allows the user to correlate codes with a true, visual picture and understanding of the weather. This tutorial CD is perfect for all pilots, from students to rated pilots who wish to remain sharp and proficient. It’s also ideal for airport personnel, dispatchers, and anyone else who needs to view aviation weather information. Weather Statement Groundschool™ Screen Shots …

WAAS and GPS CD-ROM Course

WAAS, the FAA\'s Wide Area Augmentation System, lets you fly more than 1,700 LPV and LNAV/VNAV approaches with vertical guidance to as low as 200 feet. Whether you are a GPS expert or beginner, there is lots to know about flying the new WAAS approaches.

Thousands of WAAS capable Garmin GPSs are shipping, but there is no easy way to learn all of the details of flying with WAAS. This new course teaches you to fly these approaches step-by-step, and shows you how many feet of obstacle clearance you have at ever point on the approach. Learn from two Master CFIs how to avoid the "gotchas" that can trick even experienced GPS pilots.…

VOR/NDB Simulator

VOR NDB Simulator™ is a VOR navigation simulator that enables you to practice real-time VOR and NDB navigation on your computer!
Practicing navigation is simple and effortless! While The Navigation CD-ROM™ teaches the theory behind navigation, VOR NDB Simulator™ enables you to practice real-time VOR and NDB navigation on your computer! You don\'t have to worry about altitude control, radio communications, airspace, traffic, or other major tasks, as you would in real flight. Aircraft are expensive to operate, and they make poor classrooms. With VOR NDB Simulator, you\'re able to learn navigation techniques on your computer, in an inexpensive and non-distracting environment. It\'s got everything you need to visualize navigation! The screen consists of several components: 1) an airplane flying across the screen, 2) VOR\'s and NDB\'s, 3) navigation and flight instruments, and 4) controls that enable you to specify aircraft direction, airspeed, wind component, and other options. Develop the skills you need at your own pace! Your objective is to set the navigation instruments accordingly, and then turn the aircraft as needed to intercept and track VOR radials and NDB bearings. You can practice position-finding, interception, and tracking skills. Instrument pilots can also practice advanced skills such as DME arcs and holding. Best of all, you can create custom navigation scenarios by dragging the VOR\'s, NDB\'s, and airplane around the screen wherever you wish. It\'s all point-and-click!







On-screen instructions are fully-voice-narrated
  There\'s only one Simulator Module—you can choose any array of instruments to use, from the Instrument Manager
  The Instrument Manager lets you select flight and nav instruments in an array of combinations (including Directional Gyro, Course Deviation Indicators, Automatic Direction Finder, Horizontal Situation Indicator, and Radio Magnetic Indicator)
  Instruments are draggable, allowing you to arrange them as they exist on your aircraft’s instrument panel
  VOR and NDB navigation can be performed simultaneously on the same screen
  “Random” buttons generate random aircraft heading, navaid positions, aircraft position, and wind speed and direction
  Aircraft can be turned continuously at standard rate (3° per second) and slower with either the keyboard or mouse
  ADF interference causes the ADF or RMI needle to vary its indications, making navigation more difficult “Show/Hide” buttons allow you to hide and show the aircraft, course lines, path flown, and heading vectors
  The instruments and map area can be printed by the default printer configured on your computer
  Grid lines on the map area represent square miles
  ADF instrument allows fixed-card and rotatable-card methods of use
  Precision movement of the course needle on the Course Deviation Indicators and Horizontal Situation Indicator allows greater navigation accuracy
  Compass rose symbol on VOR navaids now remains stationary when the course is changed  …

Traffic Awareness - TAS/TCAS I Computer-based Trainer

Computer-based Traffic Advisory System Trainer

The CD-ROM based training program from ElectronicFlight Solutions details the operation of a Traffic Advisory System (TCAS I/TAS). The overall operation and intruder priority levels are explained before progressing into the specifics of the Bendix/King KTA 870, KMH 880, Goodrich SkyWatch™ and SkyWatch™ HP systems.



The self-guided computer-based training then highlights the operation of the TCAS I/TAS systems on the Avidyne FlightMax, Honeywell KMD-550/850 and Garmin display systems. The history and development of TCAS systems and their transition into the general aviation systems of today are explained. The ElectronicFlight program details intruder symbology, audio alert priorities, limitations of antenna shading, differences between the various TCAS systems, operation modes, alert inhibits, intruder tracking methodology and sensitivity levels.

After successful completion of this training module, the operation and familiarity of the traffic awareness systems should become second nature when it counts the most—under high-workload situations. At the very core of the self-paced CBT (computer-based training) program is the ElectronicFlight Complete Learning™ Methodology that focuses on the following basic elements:

  Instill conceptual knowledge, instead of rote memorization Implant mental models (a picture imprinted into permanent memory) Present the conceptual organization of a system Provide requisite knowledge using highly graphical methods Reinforce knowledge with targeted practice exercises Implement feedback and remedial review when checked for retention For additional information, click on the following link.
