Flight School 6 hours (Estimated)

Flight school introduces the student pilot to instrument flight procedures by beginning instruction seated in the right-hand seat of the instructors aircraft. The student progresses to solo flight and then begins ATC training to prepare for flights on the VATSIM network.

Once the Student begins Flight School, instruction is accomplished by means of Multiplayer Direct Connection via IP Address to the Instructor's PC. Here the student can join the Instructional aircraft (C172 Skyhawk) where controls can be switched between the Student and Instructor. Because the school has only one Flight Instructor, this method of instruction must be shared by all students on a one-at-a-time basis.
