Pilot Study Flashcards

I do not instruct or author cards so you can pass a checkride. I instruct and author to a level of performance such that if you were to find yourself in the worst of scenarios - night, with an emergency, in the weather, with loved ones on board - you will be just fine. By virtue of instructing to the criteria above, passing a checkride, a stage check, or a written exam is simply a second order effect – a part of the journey. My flashcards capture 30 years of flying experience and many years’ worth of checkrides.

There are cheaper cards out there…but they have up to eight questions on a card which in turn keeps their print costs at a minimum. This defeats the purpose of flashcards. My cards have one card, one question, one answer. This focuses your attention on one concept and one concept only. This leads to more effective learning because you can organize your cards into subjects you know well, subjects you need to work on, and subjects needing review. Additionally, many of my cards have QR codes on them so you can perform a deeper dive into the subject matter.
