CHAPTER 1. Introduction To Weight-Shift Control

Medical Summary

Before approaching the WSC aircraft, a pilot must take a moment to refl ect upon current medical, physical, and psychological conditions. During this time, a pilot should evaluate his or her ability to conduct the fl ight considering self, passenger, and people and property on the ground. Using the “I’M SAFE” checklist is a smart way to start a prefl ight before getting to the WSC aircraft. Prior to fl ight, assess overall fi tness as well as the aircraft’s airworthiness.

Chapter Summary

This chapter provides basic knowledge that is essential for WSC pilots and should serve as a starting point for them. However, there are many other handbooks, advisories, and regulations with which all WSC pilots should become familiar as their maturity within the aeronautical realm increases and/or the need for greater depth of understanding becomes necessary due to location, temperature, altitude, etc.
