Cap’n Mike’s IFR Refresher Ground School

A full IFR ground school refresher. Primarily for rated Instrument Airplane pilots, but also for those currently studying for their initial instrument rating. We’ll review everything from pilot qualifications and logging, through equipment requirements, flight planning, weather, charts, regulations, and documents, to in-flight techniques to hone your single pilot IFR flying chops, and much, much more.

Bring your fully-charged iPad or other tablet device loaded with your favorite EFB and flight data and documents appropriate to California or paper charts and books if you prefer.

Mike Jesch has been a single- and multi-engine instrument ground and flight instructor since 1985, and has flown many thousands of hours “In The System.” He puts that wealth of knowledge and experience together with an open and approachable style, to help refresh your knowledge, confidence, and readiness to be a Real IFR Pilot.

Cap’n Mike’s (mostly) day job has been with a major airline since 1987, where he has flown as Captain on the Boeing 737 since 2002. But his “real” flying takes place in an IFR-equipped Cessna 182 based at Fullerton, CA, or whatever his clients show up in to fly that day. He is a two-time Master CFI, and a FAASTeam Lead Representative in the Long Beach (CA) FSDO. As a speaker on the national stage, he has presented on a wide range of subjects across the country for numerous groups, including AOPA, The 99s, EAA, Aviation Mastery, and more.
