Before each training flight you will sit down with your instructor for a preflight briefing to discuss that days lesson. The preflight briefing gives you and your instructor the opportunity to go over each aspect of the flight prior to launch. At this time your instructor will introduce any new maneuvers or procedures and thoroughly explain each one. You will also review any previous maneuvers you will be performing. And discuss any questions or difficulties you may be having with the maneuver or concept. Your instructor will also check to see if the appropriate reading or studying has been completed. They may ask you relevant questions from your studies and may ask you to explain what you've learned. This is one of the most important steps in any flight lesson. If you do not have a good understanding of what it is you will be doing in the airplane it is difficult if not impossible to learn. Take this opportunity to make sure you truly understand what it is your instructor will be asking you to do during the flight.
