Private/Instrument/Commercial/Helicopter Pilot Initial Training requires communicating with ATC Units even prior to engine start-up, that specific information should be obtained by studying, understanding & memorizing. Additionally, New beginners are supposed to be practicing so many aviation communication terms and abbreviations ranging from steps for VFR Navigation Charts, airport layout, runway directions, (This is a must for ongoing flight training), VFR route planning, requirements to Holding Point, Takeoff Briefing, Towered & Non-towered airport traffic pattern procedures.
This Poster is called ‘Visual Flight (VFR) & Traffic Pattern Visualized Communication Practices` and covers the essential VFR Communication Terms, definitions and techniques. The main purpose of Visual Flight (VFR) & Traffic Pattern Visualized Communication Practices is to give you some self-confidence during your training period and help visualize the subject matters in your mind, makes you informed about how and where to speak with ATC? This poster provides an effective and practical approach to your initial & ongoing flight training. As long as you succeed in visualizing all aviation weather terms and definitions presented in the poster, this daily & hourly exercise will make your theory & practical flight training shorter, more successful, and sustainable.
Why is visualizing the subject matters in our mind so important in Flight Training?
Visualizing the images is a learning style. Information may be learned in a variety of ways: by seeing or hearing, by reflecting or acting, analyzing or visualizing, or it may be learned piecemeal or steadily. Evidence from the scientific community has shown that Visualization and Imagining allows us to remember effectively and mentally rehearse our intended movements. Visualization and action are intimately connected, involving the motor cortex. Over time the brain learns our routine movements, allowing these actions to become more automatic and fine-tuned.
This unique `Visual Flight (VFR) & Traffic Pattern Visualized Communication Practices` poster has been designed in the light of the aforementioned information, using colorful graphics and definitions in colored boxes, step-by-step procedure descriptions, helpful hints to help grab the information ASAP while keeping all visualized images in your mind.
What’s the technique in visualizing the images and essential data? How frequently should this be practiced?
Hang up the poster in front of you.
Look at the images for a few moments, several times in a day. (Perspective is also important. )
Close your eyes, and try to visualize the object as clearly as you can, without opening your eyes, for as long as you can, even if it is only for a few seconds at first.
Try to see and remember all the details. (For example, Controlled & Uncontrolled Airspace, ATIS & AWOS Info, Clearances – engine start-up, taxi, takeoff, approach, landing-, procedures for entering the traffic pattern.)
Here are the most important contents of the poster:
Controlled Airspace-Towered Airport Traffic Pattern Rules
Uncontrolled Airspace-Nontowered Airport Traffic Pattern Rules
Entering the Traffic Pattern
Airport Taxiway Diagram and point by point explanatory definitions for clearances, Points for holding short and crossing without getting clearances.
Case by case, point by point: Samples of clearances (from engine start-up to shutdown)
Requesting Flight Following (Radar Control)
Note: 3 MIL (. 003″) thickness laminate provides adequate protection yet is still thin and flexible enough to allow the printed piece to be folded. It can be easily folded to A5 size.
