Students will read from the Pilot's Handbook of Aeronautical Knowledge (PHAK) and the Airplane Flying Handbook (AFH) to review requirements for getting a pilot's license and how to taxi an aircraft.
Then they will make a simple model of a Cessna 172 and identify its main parts and functions. We will see how the flight control surfaces work using the flight simulators.
