1. Preflight Orientation

2. Flight

3. Postflight Evaluation


During this lesson, the student will continue to review full and partial panel instrument flight and become more familiar with related systems and equipment falfunctions. The student will also be introduced to additional full/partial panel instrument maneuvers and procedures.


Lesson Review

Systems and Equipment Malfunctions

  • Gyroscopic Failure -- Attitude and/or Heading Indicators
  • Loss of Communications Equipment

Full and Partial Panel Instrument

  • Straight-and-Level Flight
  • Standard-Rate Turns
  • Steep Turns
  • Constant Airspeed Climbs and Descents
  • Maneuvering During Slow Flight
  • Power-Off Stalls
  • Power-On Stalls

Lesson Introduction

Full Panel Instrument

  • Constant Rate Climbs and Descents
  • Timed Turns to Magnetic Compass Headings

Partial Panel Instrument

  • Recovery From Unusual Flight Attitudes
  • Timed Turns to Magnetic Compass Headings
  • Magnetic Compass Turns
  • Constant Rate Climbs and Descents


The student will, using partial panel instrument reference, maintain altitude +/-200 feet, heading +/-15 degrees, airspeed +/-15 knots, and desired climb and descent rate +/-150 feet per minute. The student will also demonstrate a basic understanding of IFR systems operation and recognize systems and equipment malfunctions.
