New approach to VFR pilot training

Kristýna Vodičková

Abstract


With an increased usage of GNSS navigation devices as one of the primary navigation means during VFR flights, it was necessary to address the issue of proper usage of such devices and to educate pilots about this new trend. Until a recent period, there was no existent comprehensive material that would  enable pilots in training to get access to new evolution in navigation. Therefore, a project named CaBilAvi (Capacity Building for Aviation Stakeholders) was launched under the HORIZON 2020 framework. In this article, the author addresses the changes that were derived in VFR pilot training syllabus and pilot education materials. Furthermore, the author mentions specific activities introduced during the project, that were necessary to support the dissemination of new knowledge to the proper audience interested in general aviation.
