Oxford Flying Club was officially opened by the Mayor of Oxford in 1939. However, its life was initially rather short, and as the country prepared for war, restrictions placed on civil flying quickly curtailed its activities. Resurrected in 1947 and renamed the Oxford Aeroplane club, it gradually increased its fleet and reputation and, by 1960, had made the important transition from a club for private pilots to a fully-fledged flying school geared to the training of professional pilots. As the parent company, Oxford Aviation, expanded, so too did the training offered by the school, and by 1961, when it merged with the Pressed Steel Co to become British Executive Air Services Ltd, Oxford was firmly established as one of the UK’s leading Flight Training Schools. Dedicated ground school buildings and student residential accommodation on site were quickly provided, and the first fully integrated Commercial Pilot’s Licence and Instrument Rating courses began in May 1962.

Over more than 40 years, King Schools has delivered many millions of courses to pilots in training. Through intimate video instruction John and Martha King have taught more pilots than anyone in the history of aviation—for many years teaching more than half the pilots in the United States learning to fly. It's no surprise that pilots throughout the world know John and Martha and regard them as their personal aviation mentors.
From day one of flight training, pilots are told to “stay ahead” of the airplane, but what does this mean exactly? In this thought-provoking new program, Richard L. Collins examines situations where pilots are most likely to “get behind” the airplane, triggering a chain of events that could lead to an accident or incident. Collins looks at real-world IFR and VFR scenarios involving weather, fuel management, maneuvering flight, terrain awareness, stall/spin events, emergencies, approaches and takeoffs and landings – areas that have proven to cause problems for pilots of all levels. See what, when and why things went wrong in each example and learn to think ahead and stay ahead of the airplane to keep your flights safely on course.
