Watching Videos VS. Reading Manuals?
We do not discourage pilots from reading their manuals. As a matter of fact, we encourage it. However, many people retain information better through visual learning, so this is just another tool to add value to your learning experience. The videos that we have created, incorporate information from multiple manuals and other official sources, allowing the viewer the convenience of not having to jump from one manual to the next, just to cover one procedure. Just press play and learn. Feel free to open the manuals and follow along. This is the beauty of our library, you get to create your own learning experience with the benefit of seeing what you read, come to life.
How often are videos released?
In no particular order, 2-4 videos will be released every 2-3 months, depending on the depth of the procedure being demonstrated. Each video is carefully reviewed for accuracy and relevancy before being released. As a new company and as our team members are still currently flying the line, the library will be built over time and continuously updated as needed.
What devices can be used to view the library?
Smart phones, tablets, PC's and laptops. Once you have an internet connection, you will have 24/7 access to the videos.
What sources are used to create your videos?
Manufacturer Manuals, Maintenance Manuals and Bulletins.. All based on documented information and whenever this is not the case, it is explicitly stated in the narrative.
Can I download the videos locally to have access without internet connection?
Due to constant revisions, updates and the addition of new content, it would be difficult to control the videos that have been downloaded. In order to ensure that every time you watch a video you are viewing the latest version of that procedure, we have decided to keep the videos available through online access only.
Which Flight Simulator software was used?
The production was created using Lockheed Martin's, PREPAR3D V5 Flight Simulator. The aircraft being used is the PMDG B737NGXu.
