Are you a new pilot and need to know how to preflight a trike for your initial pilot training or checkride? Just bought a new trike and been a while since you set a trike wing up? Taking a trike wing down for the first time? Or, has it been a while since you took your trike wing down and are a little foggy on the sequence used to get it down and in the bag? This DVD is for you.


This is actually two separate videos on one DVD. The first video is "How to Preflight a Trike" andthe second is "How to Setup and Takedown a Trike." Both are extremely helpful in becoming more familiar with your aircraft. Because this is generic information that applies to a all trikes several schools are using the video to give a broader view of the setup and takedown of the trike rather than setting up or taking down a specific aircraft.


Best to watch this video during your initial training and before your checkride.


You can play this DVD on any DVD player or on most computers.


If you are not familiar with the preflight, setup or takedown procedures this will make it all so much easier; save you lots of time and frustration; and keep you safer.
