Goggles Aren’t Just for IFR Training


VFR Training Goggles keep student pilots looking outside the airplane

Sporty’s VFR Training Goggles

Sporty’s VFR Training Goggles were designed by a Sporty’s Academy flight instructor to get the student’s eyes off the gauges and outside the airplane. While wearing VFR Training Goggles, the view of the panel is blocked, forcing the student to look outside the airplane – perfect for steep turns.

“There comes a point in flight training when students get hypnotized by gauges instead of looking outside the aircraft,” says Sporty’s Vice President John Zimmerman. “Many instructors resolve to put a sectional chart over all the panel in an effort to get students to look outside while practicing a maneuver. This is a better option.”   

Constructed of pliable material to conform to a pilot’s head, the VFR Training Goggles fit snugly with an adjustable elastic strap, and won’t interfere with headsets.

VFR Training Goggles [2780A] are available for $12.95 and may be purchased by calling 1-800-SPORTYS or at sportys.com.
