About the Direct-to Savvy GPS Pilot™ Seminar


Using GPS is learned on the ground and practiced in the airplane.

-

The Direct-to Savvy GPS Pilot™ seminar is a 10-hour instructor-led course designed for instrument pilots who want to fully harness the power of their IFR-certified GPS receiver and avoid the gotchas. The course is accepted by the FAA as an industry conducted recurrent training program and satisfies the ground portion of the FAA Wings program.

 -

This course is designed to teach far more than how to push keys and turn knobs; it is designed to teach GPS navigation using a specific GPS receiver in just a few days. Beginning with the basics and progressing to advanced procedures, students become expert users of the GPS receiver covered in the seminar while acquiring working knowledge of the new regulations and TERPS associated with GPS use during instrument operations.

Fostering comprehension rather than basic memorization is the goal. The course places an emphasis on mastering the GPS's proprietary organization of all the functions. This method allows students to quickly gain a good working knowledge of how to access all  functions and how to navigate within the unit easily with minimal memorization effort. This is the foundation to mastering the use of GPS receivers while maintaining safety under the most intense workloads.

-

Using the proven Ground School in a Box™ methodology, our expert instructor will lead you through an interactive multimedia presentation. You will be encouraged and coached to follow along using a simulator or your own GPS receiver and the acclaimed The Savvy GPS Pilot's Workbook.

The Direct-to Savvy GPS Pilot™ seminar is taught in three different settings.

No matter what form of training you choose, you will graduate as a confident savvy GPS pilot and will receive a completion certificate. Read what other students have said.
