CC is an FAA instructor. Don't know about CAA.
Correct. I confirmed that on the FAA database.

... go and do some gliding...
Jean.
Indeed! Once you have outlanded a glider a few times, walked the field that you landed in, to see how different it actually is to what you thought it would be like when circling overhead makes a BIG difference the next time you fly power and go cross-country and ponder the fields below...

Also, I did aerobatics, both in gliders and power (C152 at Heidelberg) and both teach you a LOT about unusual attitudes and their recoveries...

Happy landings! H.

Good post. Good idea too!

My recommendations:

1. Operations at very low speed/High Angle of attack
2. Low level flight, with due consideration for wind, terrain, obstacles, about a fixed point/feature.
3. Track crawl VFR navigation
4. Short field operations at max weight
5. High Density Alt Operations.
6. In flight replanning, and diversion operations.
7. Low fuel operations (what to do when you’re running short on time).
8. Effective precautionary landings.
9. Unprepared strip operations.
10. The go (continue), or no-go (no continue) decision process.
11. Use of a decision making model (TDODAR, as example).

Forgive my facts here Richard but your post harks of the C185 Bosbok and Kudu SAAF guys, I heard somewhere that these pilots were actually some of the best of the SAAF, besides all the points you mention notably in operations low-level navigation.
Straighten up and fly right!

Hi Apollo,

Yes indeed, and 42 Sqn (C-185/Bosbok) is where I learnt a lot of the above, and the training/operations were of a very high standard at the time.

Tbe point above are really, really useful to gain proficiency in, as they are what one will use when in the dwang.

Well worth doing training in these aspects.

Thanks Richard! Some of these has really peaked my interest.

How would I go about training for these though? For example, does "effective precautionary landings" imply doing/practicing precautionary landings, including actual touchdown?

Also, it doesn't seem like the type of training a run-of-the-mill instructor will be able to take me through (no offence to any instructors, and apologies if I am mistaken in saying/thinking that).
Am I correct in saying quite a few of these will be covered in some form in bushplane courses? (1, 2, 8, 9)

In my humble opinion, CC Pocock is the best option, if you have the means. He does training with your own aircraft. My money was well spent.
Thanks Bart, I'm very glad to hear it has been of some value to your flying!
