Operated by McAir Aviation. This is my trick for helping students learn to look outside the cockpit and fly the plane by developing a feel for it. We are about 4 miles south of Longmont's Vance Brand Airport turning onto the 45 so we can enter the left downwind for runway 29. I am just about ready to point out the high power setting for this descending turn to TPA. You can see the Jeffco ATIS on my sticky there.

Wow Tim! You'd better point out that high power setting to that student...don't want to redline it going into the traffic pattern! Like the bank angle too! ;)

It's good to see that there are still instructors out there that teach private pilot students how to fly by feel and to look out the window. Try doing that in a Level 6 simulator!

I am just happy to see that you turned off the GPS. Too many primary instruction aircraft out there are full glass cockpit, what happens when they fail and you're not playing a video game anymore?
I guess that as long as you don't hear the stall horn, you will be fine :)
