Introduction to my notes

Some information may be wrong or incomplete. That’s fine. The purpose of these notes is to get to the bottom line of the thing being discussed. It is not my goal to be a CFI. However, if you find that anything I’ve said is wrong or out of date, let me know and I’ll make corrections.

Student Pilot Instruments

Knowing the instruments is very important. These are the instruments in the Diamond DA-20 that I fly. You can look at the instruments as items that must be referenced on a checklist or as tools to understand how the aircraft is behaving. Here I try to make a connection between each instrument and what is important about each instrument.
