Each reply must contain at least 150 words, including a question or a relevant follow-up response to guide the discussion.

Quiz: FTA Handbook Acknowledgment

The Flight Affiliate Handbook provides essential information to the successful completion of the student's flight training program and requirements. This quiz will ask the student to acknowledge that he/she has read the FTA Handbook provided via the FTA Welcome Letter as well as any and all information provided on the Liberty University Flight Training Affiliate Program website.

Discussions (5)

The student must complete various Discussions in this course. These are intended to be scholarly dialogues supported assertions with proper scholarly support in APA format with sources listed as References at the end of the post. (MLO: A-D)

Flight Course Log Quizzes (2)

As the student progresses through Flight Training Syllabus at his/her Flight Training Affiliate, it is very important that the student stays on pace to complete the course requirements before the end of the term. To help the student stay fully aware of his/her own progress and to keep the professor informed, the student will submit a Flight Course Log Quiz. This is the student’s opportunity to keep a journal of his/her flight training experience and it will serve as a means for the professor to understand how things are going in flight training.

As the student progresses through his/her Flight Training Syllabus at his/her Flight Training Affiliate, it is very important that the student stays on pace to complete the “Percent of TCO” requirement before the end of the course. To help the student stay fully aware of his/her own progress and to keep the professor informed, the student will upload the “Percent of TCO Form” verifying “percent of TCO” progress at the midterm and final week of the course. This form will provide crucial information exchanged between all stakeholders (professor, student, and flight instructor/ FTA).

Flight Scenario Presentation Assignment

The purpose of this assignment is to prepare a visual and audio briefing/presentation regarding a provided flight scenario to include applicable references from this course. The visual briefing/presentation must include a 4-6 minute recorded Narrated PowerPoint presentation thoroughly covering all necessary key elements. Within the presentation, the student must include and cite from appropriate aviation resources. A minimum of 2 sources, APA formatted, is required. (MLO: A-D)
