Second JF Presentation to Melbourne Flight Training, YMMB Moorabbin Airport – 28 November 2014

Thanks again to Glen, Ermin and the team at Melbourne Flight Training (MFT) at YMMB Moorabbin Airport, for the opportunity to present the Jacobson Flare to some more staff instructors and students, in formal and other focussed discussions. The Company even provided an aircraft for a couple of instructors to gain some one on one experience in applying the JF and the response to these presentations and discussions has been sensational.

Any educational institute has a responsibility to its students to regularly review what they teach and how they teach it and MFT, have welcomed me warmly, perfectly willing to look at something different – something that challenges 100 years of inertia.

In nearly thirty years of introducing the Jacobson Flare to a wide range of flight training organisations, the enthusiastic response of MFT instructors is a standout.

Would you care to experience that unsurpassed sense of accomplishment, derived from executing consistently beautiful landings, more often?

First JF Presentation to Melbourne Flight Training, Moorabbin Airport YMMB – 20 November 2014

Thanks to Glen Buckley and the team at Melbourne Flight Training, at YMMB Moorabbin Airport, VIC, Australia, for the opportunity to present the Jacobson Flare to more than thirty staff and student pilots, last Thursday 20 November 2014.

There was keen interest shown, especially by a very enthusiastic group of young instructors, already actively seeking a more fact-based landing training technique to raise competency levels: their own, as dedicated instructors and their students’, to give them increased skill and confidence in their own abilities.

Nothing increases confidence in performing a task, like increased confidence in one’s own knowledge base.

There has been an immediate result – one student, a refugee from two previous flight training organisations and still having landing issues, was introduced to the Jacobson Flare by her instructor and applied it, successfully and consistently, at YMEN Essendon (with its height illusion-inducing 45m wide runways), YOLA Colac and back at YMMB Moorabbin.

This revelation has been noted many times before – the improvement is immediate, because the student now has a visible instructive model, not a loose, non-descript set of personal opinions, recycled for 100 years.

We look forward to developing the relationship with Melbourne Flight Training.

A Time for Change?

My principal objectives have always been to improve pilot competence and confidence in landing to enhance flight safety, world-wide, through The Jacobson Flare – the unique and quantifiable explanation of what pilots have been trying to achieve by ‘feel’ and guesswork, with widely-varying results, for over 100 years.

My principal challenge has been that, while I have developed a solution (since 1987), world aviation still hasn’t realised that it has a problem!

Since 1987, the unique application of The Jacobson Flare has vanquished the imprecise aspects of landing an aeroplane, unchanged since the end of World War 1. Everything else in aviation had advanced since 1918, but NOT landing training.

After 30 years, technology has enabled me to bypass the slow traffic and present the Jacobson Flare app for iPad directly to those who have always known that guesswork and repetition is not good enough for the most precise manoeuvre pilots are required to execute.

So this is a call to supporters of the Jacobson Flare to start asking questions and to challenge those entrenched, tired and obsolete attitudes.

The Jacobson Flare app for iPad is the best resource, yet, to assist in effecting a change around the world and the great news is that change is now occurring.

Jacobson Flare App for iPad Cleared for Take-off

IMG_0254We are thrilled to announce the launch of the Jacobson Flare app for the iPad, on the App Store.

The results of this two-year project are reflected in the design and attention to detail – just two hallmarks of this stylish presentation.

The Jacobson Flare app for the iPad is more than the equivalent of a 350-page book; versatile and interactive, it totally replaces earlier and widely acclaimed presentations of the Jacobson Flare Paper, “Where to Flare” and its attendant files.

The price is AUD$29.99 (USD$23.99) making the Jacobson Flare app for the iPad accessible to younger student pilots, who have committed themselves to enough expense already in pursuing their dreams to fly. Indeed this app can save money, at any level of training.

Pilots and training organisations reduce the expense of flying extra hours, previously necessary while students get the ‘hang’ and the ‘feel’ of landing their first or their next airplane. Instead of using trial and error techniques devolved from World War One, pilots are introduced to a complete yet simple system of landing, to be applied not just at the elementary stage, but throughout a whole career.

The Jacobson Flare is comprehensive yet practical, simple to master and extremely effective. Since 1985, it has been adopted by hundreds of civil and military pilots of various ages, abilities and experience, in many airplane types ranging from sailplanes (gliders) and single-engine light airplanes to large jet transports.

The Jacobson Flare app for the iPad addresses obvious differences between airplanes but embraces their similarities. It supports the need for a basic system of flight training that may be adapted as necessary to meet specific requirements. Its universal application is long overdue and this app presents the Jacobson Flare clearly and concisely, as never before.
