Flight Program

Lou Thiebelmont presented a really wonderful program last night. Lou is a retired pilot and FAA instructor. His program started with a really good explanation of how pilot's navigate, the forces on an airplane in flight, and the various instruments and how they work. It was really well done. Explanations were short, so you weren't bored if the science wasn't your thing. But they were really concise and packed with info, so you got a lot out of it, if that was your thing. He then brought up Flight Simulator, and showed us how all of those instruments actually work in different types of planes. I really looked at Flight Simulator in a whole new light, having seen it used by someone who actually knew what he was doing. There were a lot of requests to get Lou back again, so keep your eyes open. Thanks Lou!
