Rod initially created the Instrument Pilot eGround School for Instrument Students. It covers the entire range of IFR topics that students must learn during their training for the rating. But, unlike a traditional ground school course just aimed at helping you pass a test, Rod explains WHY and HOW things work. In typical Machado fashion, he injects a healthy dose of fun into the explanations and makes dry topics interesting.
While great for students preparing for their IFR Knowledge Exams, the Instrument Pilot eGround School is equally helpful for Rusty Instrument Pilots looking to get proficient again, or prepare for an Instrument Proficiency Check (IPC). Rod will help you fill in any gaps in your knowledge and re-familiarize yourself with important concepts you may have forgotten.
The Instrument Pilot eGround School is also a tremendous resource for Instrument Instructors. You'll see how Rod teaches complex topics with ease, and keeps students engaged.
