A friendly FBO/school lobby is most important.

Podcast 8  Flying with Mr. Garmin 430 

    Flight instructor Mr. Garmin helped me learn to fly the localizer.

    Flying an ILS, localizer, or VOR can be a difficult skill to learn.

    All of the books on Instrument flying devote very little space to the actual flying part.

    This podcast is about my troubles over correcting on an approach, especially as I came closer to the localizer. With Mr. Garmin 430 as my coach, I found the way.
