Windshield Reference Markers
The IMFI text recommends using dry erase markers to mark small horizontal and vertical reference lines on the aircraft's windshield.  Some pilots have reported problems getting the dry erase marks to completely erase off the Plexiglas.  The best solution is to use small suction cups to mark the required reference points on the windshield as shown below.

Purchase a 10 pack of small suction cups for only $2.95 + tax (Arizona only).  Shipping via first class mail to U.S. addresses is included at no additional charge. Contact Gordon for international orders.

172 R/S Instrument Cover
Many of the techniques taught in IMFI require several of the primary flight instruments to be covered.  Covering the instruments ensures that the student properly gathers perceptions from outside references rather than the flight instruments.
