Feature Article: Scanning (instructor notes)

I suggest a scan process of having the student follow my finger as I point successively from HI to AI, VSI to AI, Altimeter to AI, etc. with emphasis upon the AI (attitude indicator). Simulate a change in direction and move the finger faster through the instruments and include the turn coordinator for the standard rate indication. It is important that the student realize that any change in the aircraft direction, altitude, or airspeed requires an increase in scan speed. Any fixation on an instrument such as the heading indicator as it progresses in a turn is to be avoided.
