About this Presentation
There’s a lot Beech pilots can learn from airline operations. The transition from flying as part of a crew to single-pilot operations in a Beech airplane are substantial. Learn about both from an experienced airline captain and Bonanza owner. This presentation will cover:

  • Airline resources that are readily adapted to general aviation flying
  • Utilizing Crew Resource Management while flying single pilot
  • Making the transition from the airline cockpit to flying a Beechcraft
  • Efficient use of flows and checklists
  • Standardization of procedures
  • Comparison of airline recurrent training and BPPP

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.
