Cross Country Endorsement

Our informative training videos demonstrate the basic fundamentals of successfully navigating a visual flight.

They include both pre-flight briefings on how to plan your flight, and in-flight videos on how to handle departures, arrivals, diversions, and much more. It is best to watch the pre-flight briefing first, followed by the in- flight lesson.
