About this Presentation
Most instrument-rated Beech pilots have adopted Electronic Flight Bags (EFBs) and updated at least some of their avionics. Those changes mean we should reconsider some long-standing habits and procedures for IFR flight. In particular, the way we prepare for and brief IFR procedures should reflect these advanced avionics and EFBs.

You’ll learn about:

  • How to ensure that you have and can easily use the information you need to prepare for and fly instrument procedures
  • How to create an efficient, effective process to set up, brief, and then continually assess your progress
  • How a good briefing can help you avoid common mistakes while using sophisticated avionics

Viewers will be able to type in their questions to be answered during the event. We’ll explain how to do so at the beginning of the webinar.

Although this American Bonanza Society program is oriented toward pilots of Beech Bonanzas, Debonairs, Barons and Travel Airs, the discussion, techniques and procedures described are valuable to the pilot of any airplane.

Presenter
Bruce Williams is a flight instructor based in Seattle. A general aviation pilot since the mid-1970s, he is now a check instructor at Galvin Flying at Boeing Field, conducting Part 61 and Part 141 stage checks for private, instrument, commercial, and flight instructor candidates. As a BPPP instructor, Bruce also trains Beechcraft Bonanza pilots. He especially enjoys working with IFR pilots who fly with today’s advanced avionics, like those in his updated 1989 A36. In the summer Bruce provides stall-spin-upset and aerobatic training in an Extra 300L aerobatic airplane. During a 15-year career at Microsoft, Bruce worked on six versions of Microsoft Flight Simulator. He’s the author of two books about using PC-based flight simulation to complement flight training.
