VFR Cross Country Operations

(Back to top)

While pattern work and local flights provide the initial foundation to learn to fly, at some point, you’re going to want to spread your wings and actually go somewhere! That’s what flying is all about after all. Cross country flight planning is part science and part art. This course will dig deep into both, covering the fundamentals of planning cross country flights from scratch as well as best practices amassed from years of flying in a wide range of weather and terrain.

Here’s what’s included in the course:

Lesson 1: Introduction to VFR flight planning

  • Introduction to Aeronautical Charts
  • Cross Country Planning
  • FAA Flight Plan
  • FSS Weather Briefing

Lesson 2: Basic VFR Cross Country Operations

  • Brief
  • Flight
  • Debrief

Lesson 3: ATC Services and Radio Navigation

  • Brief
  • Flight
  • Debrief

Lesson 4: Advanced Cross Country Operations

  • Brief
  • Flight
  • Debrief

Course length:

  • 4 lessons @ 2 hours each, 8 hours total time.

Course Prerequisites:

  • Able to fly within 100 feet, 10 degrees of heading, and 10 knots of airspeed through basic flight maneuvers
  • Able to operate an aircraft within the airport environment to include ground operations and traffic pattern operations
  • Familiar with basic performance calculations such as weight and balance and takeoff and landing performance data
  • Familiar with weather reports and forecasts such as METARs, TAFs, FA, and FD.

Equipment Requirements

  • Access to a calculator
  • Access to a representative aircraft POH/AFM
  • Acess to a flight planing website (Skyvector) or access to a paper sectional and A/FD.
