To teach the student how to navigate the aeroplane under visual meteorological conditions using pilot navigation methods.
From taking pilot navigation, students will be comfortable with:
- En route
- Low level navigation
- Lost procedure
- Diversion procedure
- Air traffic control procedure
Students will be within a fairly restricted young age bracket, meet the highest medical standards, have a minimum education standard and passed all other selection criteria.
Should a student suddenly or even progressively show signs of deteriorating performance over one or two flights (or more) the instructor needs to use non intrusive questioning to see what is troubling the student. If the problem stems from antipathy between the student and instructor it may be prudent for the student to fly with a different instructor.
