Title: Learning to Fly


I made a series of informational videos about how to fly a single engine propeller plane and the process for receiving a pilotŐs license. I created four educational videos ranging from 3-10 minutes and uploaded them to YouTube on my own channel LearningToFLyCPL. The videos discuss the following concepts: controlling the aircraft, straight-and-level flight, landing and takeoff. The information used in the creation of these videos was based on my personal experience of obtaining my pilotŐs license and reference research through books and videos on the subject.
